Start the year off right with OSU-CHS energy conservation program

Going Green

Oklahoma State University in Tulsa has saved $3 million through the university’s energy conservation program. Energy Education Manager Angelyn Holmes credits students, faculty and staff with the program’s success.

Holmes says there are simple and easy things you can do to help:

  • Shut down computers and electronic devices when not in use.
  • Report water leaks and dripping sinks to the Tulsa Helpdesk.
  • Turn off lights when leaving an empty office or classroom.

To learn more about OSU in Tulsa’s efforts and discover things you can do at home to join the effort, visit the Energy Conservation website.
