Power Down Challenge

Discover Ways to Save

The Power Down Challenge empowers members of the Penn community to reduce their energy consumption and deepen their understanding of energy issues. Throughout the month of February, join us and our partners for educational events and programs about energy consumption, reduction, and innovation. In connection with the University's Academic Theme Year, the Power Down Challenge encourages Penn community to "discover" ways in which energy consumption affects our community and environment- and how we can come together to strengthen our conservation efforts.

The Power Down Campaign culminates in a collaborative, campus-wide Energy Reduction Challenge on February 24th, 2016.
