Dear Campus Community,
Due to the severe temperatures, gas and power prices are rising. Directives have been issued to Georgia College by the State of Georgia Natural Gas Program Office and the University System of Georgia Office of Real Estate and Facilities to minimize usage of power and gas for today where possible. Facilities staff are making efforts to reduce lighting usage.
Currently, a curtailment of natural gas is in effect as of Jan 6. The curtailment requires Georgia College to switch from natural gas to alternate fuel for heating purposes. The switch over took place Monday afternoon and will continue throughout the day, today.
We are asking all employees to be cognizant of your usage and reduce where applicable/possible. For example, if you notice any lights left on in classrooms or conference rooms, please shut them off.
Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to forward those to me.
