Energy efficiency is at the heart of everything we do. From our ongoing replacement of over 70,000 lightbulbs across campus to more environmentally friendly LEDs, to our sustained energy savings across campus, we are working every day to electrify our community and charge into a more energy-efficient future for all Hoyas.

As part of our Jesuit commitment to Care For Our Common Home, we have embraced energy efficiency as a commitment and collaborative effort, and we’re looking forward to showing every Hoya that energy efficiency is everywhere throughout the campus. This month, we want to make our progress more approachable to our community, and invite you all to help us continue to make a positive difference.

Join us this October as we celebrate how far we have come, and how far we are going to go. Scroll down to find out how you can participate, keep checking back throughout the month for updates, and let’s #EnergizeGU!
