Week 1:

kaw13w1p1
Overall, all residence halls are using more energy in Week 2 compared to Week 1, as you can see in the attached graph – there is an average of a 16% increase in energy usage.  This usage equivalent to an extra $4830 in energy costs.  Although, energy usage from this year compared to last year is down.

Thus far, MoJo has the lowest increase in energy usage with 12.2% with Martha Cook close behind.  Helen Newberry and Alice Lloyd have the highest increase in energy usage with about an 18.8% increase.

Week 2:

kaw13w2p1

Overall, all residence halls are using LESS energy in Week 2-3 compared to Week 1-2, as you can see in the attached graph – there is an average of a 1.7% increase in energy usage (last week’s was a 16% increase)!  This usage equivalent to a weekly extra $1270 in energy costs, (down from $4830 last week), bringing the total to anet extra $6650 in costs. Although, energy usage from this year compared to last year is down.

Thus far, Martha Cook has the lowest net increase in energy usage whereas MoJo and West Quad have the highest net increase.
