BlackoUT Program

The BlackoUT Competition is BACK for 2014!

The energy consumption of each residence hall will be monitored from November 1 - 30 and then compared to consumption in the community during the same period in 2013. The residence hall that showed the most improvement between the months wins a trophy!

Want to help your residence hall win the competition, check out some TIPS on how to reduce your energy consumption.
