Lab Energy Shutdown Tips
As USask prepares and powers down for COVID-19, this resource can assist lab managers in quickly identifying energy-saving measures during reduced schedules.
Lab Energy Shutdown Checklist
With lab schedules changing due to our response to COVID-19, it is good to consider that labs are some of the largest energy users on campus and huge cost savings can be made by conserving energy while away. Our Work Green Labs Checklist can be used to quickly ramp down energy use during reduced schedules due to COVID-19. To get started, make a checklist of equipment that can be temporarily "decommissioned" including computers, equipment, refrigerators, freezers, and fume hoods. Use post-it notes to quickly canvas your lab space and identify items that can be powered down to save energy.
