Location: North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695, United States
Since 2005, NC State has safely lowered building temperatures and campus energy use during university holidays, particularly winter holiday when the university is closed for about 10 consecutive days. Building temperature set points are lowered in unoccupied buildings, which saves natural gas and electricity, thereby avoiding utility costs. Campus research labs and occupied support spaces are excluded from this program.
