UVA Saves Hour

On Thursday, June 27 from 2-3 pm, the University of Virginia participated in a test of a state-wide program to reduce electricity consumption during peak demand periods in summer months. Our goal was to save 5.28 megawatts of electricity during the one hour test, the equivalent of 3,915 American households. With the efforts of UVA’s staff, faculty and students, UVA met its goal!
