Tips for Residents
Ways to Reduce Energy Use

Simple changes in behavior, such as unplugging appliances and other electronics when not in use, may seem insignificant on their own. But when you multiply these modest acts by the number of residents performing them, you could see a dramatic reduction in consumption. In an average building, more than 60% of energy intensity can stem from the residential and commercial section, versus 40% from base building systems. As such, it will be nearly impossible to improve a Building Letter Grade without dramatic changes in occupant behavior. It’s essential for boards and owners to make residents part of the conversation by educating them about how energy is being consumed in the building, where it is being wasted, and what lifestyle changes can be made to reduce personal energy consumption.
