The Claremont Colleges Power Down and Get Water Wise in 2014

Posted: March 17, 2014

PowerDown 2014 is a three-week energy reduction competition that is part of Campus Conservation Nationals, the largest nationwide electricity and water reduction competition on college and university campuses. This year, hundreds of thousands of students on nearly 200 campuses will be participating in CCN, working together to reduce consumption and mitigate climate change.

Here in Claremont, CMC, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona, and Scripps are competing against each other to see which school can reduce their electricity and water consumption the most. On most campuses, including Scripps, residence halls are also going head-to-head to be the biggest reducer. The College that reduces the most will win the coveted Green Cup, and the Scripps residence hall that reduces the most will win exciting prizes like a pizza party, Yogurtland passes, and more!

To get involved, like “Claremont Powerdown, Get Waterwise 2014” on Facebook, sign the pledge to reduce, and find out about 5C events during the competition. And most important, Power Down!
