On Thursday afternoon, August 9, 2018, Xavier University participated in a two-hour audit of it's ability to curtail electricity usage. The audit was part of a commitment to reduce the University's electrical load during extreme conditions and we accomplished this goal by cutting back its electric consumption by over two-thirds. This achievement qualifies Xavier for a rebate on its electric costs and positions the University to better support an electrical curtailment in the event of an emergency.

The team from Physical Plant would like to personally thank everyone that participated by turning off non-essential equipment and lighting during the test period.
