Pledge to be #AggieEnergyWise

As Aggies, we are dedicated to decreasing our environmental footprint by conserving our energy resources. Join your fellow Aggies and President Elizabeth Cantwell in pledging to be #AggieEnergyWise!

Students, faculty, and staff are proudly working together to save energy on campus by following the university’s Energy Conservation and Emissions Reduction Policy. As a member of the USU community, I pledge to:


  • Use power saving or modes on equipment and power off computers, screens, and power strips when leaving for more than two days.
  • Shut off office equipment such as printers and copiers at the end of the day.
  • Turn off lights when a space is not in use.


  • Switch to energy-saving, cost-effective LEDs.
  • Choose a smart power strip to avoid leaking electricity.
  • Learn more about places where phantom loads may be lurking.


  • Close blinds at the end of the day or in direct summer sunlight.
  • Close windows when the outside temperature is above 74 or below 68 degrees.
  • Share appliances such as refrigerators and microwaves.
  • Dress with the weather in mind to ensure personal comfort. 
  • Contact Facilities at (435) 797-3535 or fill out a service request form for HVAC adjustments and/or to assess and correct chronic problems.
