years after its introduction, the Great Light Switchout is gradually coming to
a close. Though LED bulbs will still be available upon request to employees on
campus through Facilities, we want to report on our successes, all thanks to
employee awareness and engagement!
is once again part of BC Hydro’s Workplace Conservation Awareness (WCA) program,
which uses the power of employee engagement to reduce energy and to create a
permanent culture of conservation within an organization.
Since 2012, 90 bulbs have been distributed to employees
at Capilano University. By switching out old, inefficient, incandescent bulbs
for new 10W LED bulbs, we have once
again confirmed CapU's environmental responsibility and active role in energy
conservation and sustainable behaviour. We have been able to save the
University money as well through a lower electricity bill!
If you are a staff member on campus and need an efficient bulb for your desk
lamp, email Facilities to receive your FREE LED today! Limited quantities
This campaign has been a partnership between BC Hydro and Capilano University.
