Residence Halls will earn energy savings based on their percentage of electrical savings compared to their average, or baseline, usage that is established over an extended time when not in a competition.
Bonus points will be awarded for participation in certain activities or based on placement in a competition, such as Dark Hour.
Each residence hall will compete against each other over four weeks. Energy savings accumulate throughout the course of the competition. The hall with the most energy savings at the end of the competition is the Champion. The hall with the most points at the end gets the Energy Stars Award.
