National Energy Competition
Each year Luther goes up against over 30 other colleges and universities from around the country to conserve the most energy and water. It is also a competition between Luther's own residence halls, and the winning hall receives a monetary award. This competition starts in early November and lasts a couple of weeks.
In 2010, Luther took 17th place out of 36 with an energy savings of 4.1% and 5th out of 17 with a water savings of 4.1%. Ylvisaker came in first among the Luther residence halls and won $1,000. In just 20 days we saved a total of 7,014 kilowatt-hours, 57,777 gallons of water, and 13,629 pounds of CO2!
