Turn Off The Lights

Energy use is an important part of CSU, Chico’s commitment to sustainability. Reducing our energy use will not only lower the campus energy bill, it will help fight global warming.  Electricity generation is a major contributor of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; more than 80% of the energy we use in California comes from nonrenewable resources, such as coal and natural gas.  Combustion of these resources produces greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.

We are asking the campus community to be mindful of energy use and begin taking small steps to reduce our impact on the environment.  One of the easiest steps you can take is to “Turn off the Lights” in unoccupied rooms.
