Join the Dark Side on Friday, April 25, by participating in Longhorn Lights Out (LLO) at the end of your day. See how simple, individual actions can result in significant energy savings across campus. Over the last six LLO events nearly 32,433 kilowatts of electricity were avoided--enough to power three average U.S. homes for a year!
LLO is co-sponsored by Engineers for a Sustainable World and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). Volunteers from these groups will assist with turning off lights and electronics. UT's Energy and Water Conservation (EWC) Program is partnering with Texas Tower Public Relations in the College of Communications to promote the event. Don't forget to wear your LLO t-shirts!
