Energy Education

It all boils down to one simple, common sense principle: if it is not in use it should be off.

From collaborating on optimizing operations with staff at the University's Central Power Plant to partnering with students for great energy management in the Residence Halls, the Washington and Lee Energy Education Program works with all members of the campus community to eliminate energy waste.

Trying to Save Energy? Feeling Exhausted?

Exhaust fans are designed to suck all the air out of a space to get rid of anything you might not want to breathe in (smoke, odors etc.) as thoroughly as possible. When you need them, you need them. When you don’t – get them off!
