Subject: Reduce The Juice Webpage & Updates

Past Successes

Thanks to everyone's efforts through the Reduce the Juice campaign, we are beginning to experience some successes.  While our overall utility costs have increased this year due to an increase in utility rates, TAMUG has reduced campus electricity usage by 10.75% over the same period in Fiscal Year '05 (Sept., Oct. and Nov.).  In addition to this success, the Physical Plant completed the installation of four energy efficient boilers which will contribute greatly to the reduction in energy consumption throughout the remainder of the fiscal year. 

Future Successes

Your continued assistance in turning off lights when existing classrooms, labs and offices will contribute greatly to the success of the Reduce The Juice program.   You can now review the Campus Energy Reduction Webpage, called " Reduce the Juice! " located on Mnet to see the campus electricity usage reports.   

Even though our reduction efforts have resulted in these noted successes, we are still faced with a budget deficit in fiscal year 06 due to higher utility rates and must continue to work towards reducing energy consumption as much as possible. Thank you and remember to Reduce the Juice!
