2011/12 latest results
The Cambridge winners of the ARU Student Switch Off competition 2011/12 are… Bridgets who narrowly pipped Peter Taylor to the title. Bridgets will be rewarded with a party at the end of term to celebrate their success! Across all the halls, electricity usage has reduced by 5.9% compared to the baseline usage. This is the equivalent amount of energy needed to:
- Keep 21 tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere
- Keep a 15W energy-saving lightbulb on for 293 years!
- Boil 1.2 million cups of tea!
These savings have been brought about largely as the result of the 200+ students in halls who have pledged to do their bit to save energy and encourage their flatmates – great work everyone!
On the Chelmsford campus the individual flats are competing against each other and the best energy-saving flat from the first term, Ransomes 118 were rewarded with a Domino’s pizza party! Another Chelmsford flat will also win a Domino’s pizza party to keep up the great work everyone!
