Biggest Reducer Energy Conservation Competition

In November, administrative and academic buildings will square off for an energy conservation competition, to see which building can reduce their electricity consumption the most and become the Biggest Reducer! With the help of UW-Stout's Building Dashboard -- an online tool that shows energy use in each building -- occupants can monitor the building's electricity use in real-time and see their building's standings throughout all of November.  Each building's performance will be compared to its own consumption data from November 2014, one year prior.  View the competition on the Building Dashboard.
