Who Knew WashU?
Question: During February 2016, by how much did Washington University student residential colleges reduce their electricity consumption during the Green Cup
Answer: D) 165,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh). Each February, student residential colleges compete to see which can reduce their electricity usage the most. In 2016, students collectively reduced their electricity usage by more than 165,000 kWh in one month, equal to the annual usage of 15 U.S. homes.
Congrats to this week’s winner, Micah Zeller, of University Libraries, who will receive an “I Knew WashU” luggage tag!
