Illini

Lights Out

Lights turned off

Tons of carbon dioxide equivalent saved

dollars saved in energy bills

Not in use? Turn off the juice!

iSEE’s Illini Lights Out program demonstrates the immense energy-saving impact of simply turning off lights when you leave a classroom, lab, or study space. Once a month on a Friday night, volunteers gather to form mini lights-out brigades and then tour campus buildings recording how many lights are left on (and shutting off as many as they can, of course).

Join our team! Volunteering takes about an hour and a half, and there are always snacks afterward!

Thanks to  a grant from the Student Sustainability Committee, even more ILO events will be coming your way next fall. Stay tuned for signups.

 

About Us

Illini Lights Out began as a one-off event organized by iSEE’s Energy Conservation and Building Standards SWATeam in Spring 2016 — at which students managed to turn out 1,500 lights in just 40 minutes — and expanded to a monthly happening during 2016-17 with the support of a grant from the Student Sustainability Committee (SSC).
