Fresno State Plant Operations asks campus personnel to turn off lights, copy machines, coffee pots, and other unnecessary equipment
during the â€œhotâ€ hours of air conditioning usage today from 3-5 p.m.
Offices operating on air conditioning timers will not be affected, said Dick Smith, Director of Utility Management.
Fresno State has reduced its energy consumption 8-10 percent the past five years, even though the campus has renovated and added several new buildings. The university plans to continue conserving energy, Smith said.
