The Center for Green Schools at USGBC, through its USGBC Students program and in partnership with Lucid, the Alliance to Save Energy and the National Wildlife Federation, is pleased to announce the results of the Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN) 2015 competition. View the press release.
From Feb. 1 through April 30, 2015, students and staff competed to achieve the greatest reductions in their residence halls’ energy use over a three-week period.
In its fifth year, more than 343,000 students and staff across 125 colleges and universities participated in CCN 2015, which saved the schools more than $180,000 in electricity and water in just three weeks. Over the five years of the competition, CCN participants have saved 6 million kilowatt hours (six GWh) of electricity, equivalent to averting more than 9 million pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere.
