Introducing Aggie Efficiency

Released by Panhandle State Campus Communications on 11/21/2017

Goodwell, Okla. — In an effort to maximize cost savings, Oklahoma Panhandle State University is adopting an energy management program, Aggie Efficiency.

The effort is currently underway and kicked off with an energy survey among faculty, staff, and building custodians. Survey results will help to identify where energy can be conserved as well as assist faculty and staff in taking action. The survey consists of office and classroom usage, as well as days and times of use. The survey will indicate things such as if computers and lights are turned off regularly. Once the results are recorded and reviewed, faculty and staff will be notified of ways to prepare their workspace or classrooms for daily energy assessments.

The energy assessor will make a daily walkabout at 6 p.m. Monday- Friday and check all energy conservation items. Building custodians and faculty/staff will earn energy bucks for each positive assessment and a friendly reminder if they fail to comply to all the items on the checklist.

The program encourages all employees to make year-round energy savings a habit using strategies such as turning off lights, shutting down devices, and turning off appliances.

Comptroller Liz McMurphy said, “Aggie Efficiency will enable our campus to achieve cost savings and promote energy conservation. There are several easy steps any individual can take daily to save energy on campus and even in their own home.”
