Escalators After Hours Shutdown

In an effort to conserve energy and save on maintenance costs, the escalatorsin NCRC Buildings 18 and 520 will be shutdown daily after-hours beginning Saturday, October 21st, from 7:00PM to 7:00AM and all day every Saturday and Sunday.

Please use adjacent stairs or elevators as necessary after-hours or on weekends.

This measure will save approximately $44,000 per year, which includes about $16,000 in energy savings and $30,000 in reduced maintenance savings. It will also support the University goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2025 by avoiding 156.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide which is equivalent to removing 33.5 cars from the road, every year.
