Students living in Jack Martin hall of residence have won the 2012-13 University of Warwick Student Switch Off energy-saving competition. Over this academic year energy usage in the hall reduced by 20% compared to the average usage over the last few years.
Together, Warwick residents have made a tremendous effort to reduce their carbon footprint. This year there were 522 Eco-Power Rangers across all the University of Warwick Halls of Residence who have been switching off lights and appliances when not in use, putting lids on pans when cooking and not overfilling their kettles. More than 380 students joined the Facebook page to get involved with the campaign. Photos submitted for the energy saving photo competitions received an amazing 534 likes. And 231 students tested their climate change knowledge in the Student Switch Off Climate quiz. Well done to everyone who took part.
