Winter Holiday Shutdown Savings!

'Tis the season to be jolly!

During Winter, UC Davis had two major administrative holidays, which means the campus participated in yet another building shutdown to do some major savings! This time, all unoccupied buildings were shut down for a total of 8 days. However, we decided to extend the shutdown for classrooms since the student holiday break was 3 weeks long. 

 

Exactly how much did we save from the extended classroom shutdown?

One of the most popular devices that we carry around is an iPhone. How many iPhone 7s do you think we could fully charge with the amount of energy we saved from just the extended classroom shutdown?

We did the math so you don't have to: the amount of energy we saved equates to fully charging 41,321,526 iPhones!

Let's put it in terms of the Student Community Center usage as well:
