Description: During the first Shut the Sash Campaign, researchers and students in the lab buildings across the UNC campus were encouraged to reduce their energy consumption by shutting the variable air volume fume hoods as often as possible. A competition between Hooker, Chapman, and Caudill was held to see which lab building could reduce the amount of energy consumed by fume hood operations. The winning building was awarded a banner that was proudly displayed inside.
Allocation amount: $250
Benefits to students and UNC: This banner helped raise awareness to both students and faculty about energy consumption in the lab buildings and provided a recognition for making strides to increase their energy savings.
