Arizona Western College District Saves On Energy Costs

Through the first nine months of last year, the Arizona Western College district used over one-million less kilowatt-hours of energy over the previous year, based in part on a new internal communications campaign to encourage people to take an active role in saving energy. That reduction amounted to over an 11% savings, or nearly $100,000. This came in spite of the addition of a new soccer field, which required power for lights, watering and other uses during the fall soccer season. The Turn It Off campaign was designed to “raise awareness and modify behavior of faculty, staff and students,” according to Steve Eckert, Director of Facilities Operations, who created the campaign with Creative Director Scott McKeogh.
