Join us on February 1 at 11:30 in the UMC room 353 for a brown bag lunch to
learn more about how you could be the next Buff Energy Star!
As part of ongoing efforts to reduce its environmental footprint and the campus
energy bill, the University of Colorado at Boulder is rewarding employees
$1,000 each for reducing building energy usage by at least 5% over the previous
This year building proctors John Culshaw, David Nicoll, and Donna Maes took the
Buff Energy Star challenge to heart and reduced Norlin, Hellems, and Math
buildings' electricity use by a combined total of 11.6%. They will each receive
a one-time $1,000 cash bonus from CU-Boulder Vice Chancellor for Administration
Frank Bruno. The three buildings conserved 645,000 kWh, reduced carbon dioxide
emissions by over 1 million pounds, and saved the university nearly $65,000.
Building proctors in buildings granted the Buff Energy Star Award will receive
a $1,000 bonus. The Buff Energy Star Award is granted to buildings that
fulfill all of the following 4 program criteria by the end of the 2010/2011
- The building must reduce its electricity use by at least 5% from the prior fiscal year.
- The building proctor must take an active role in communicating and
encouraging building occupants to conserve resources. This can be achieved by
displaying energy and water conservation posters and educational materials
(provided by Environmental Center and Resource Conservation Office).
- The building proctor must complete the Energy Audit Checklist with Moe
Tabrizi, the Campus Energy Conservation Officer (ECO).
- The building proctor must work with the ECO to take action on the findings
of the audit and submit the Energy Audit Follow up.
The Buff Energy Star Award Program is a voluntary program to showcase,
recognize and reward building proctors that reduce energy waste and improve
efficiency with the assistance of the Resource Conservation Office & Facilities
staff. The campus annual energy bill currently exceeds $25 million dollars. The
goal of the Buff Energy Star program is to reduce energy consumption, reduce
campus CO2 emissions and other environmental impacts of energy usage, and
provide energy conservation learning opportunities. You can help us achieve
this goal! Join us on February 1 at 11:30 at UMC Rm 353 to learn more.
