NYU's annual energy-saving competition is back, with a twist.

NYUnplugged is a week-long initiative to promote responsible energy consumption to reduce our community's environmental impact. From March 24-31, NYU residence halls will battle in an intense energy-saving competition. You can help your residence hall win points by reducing your own energy use and tracking your actions on the NYUGreen app! At the end of the month, the hall and individuals with the most points will be rewarded with prizes.

Earth Hour

The Kick-off

NYUnplugged will start at Earth Hour, 8:30pm (local time) on March 24. Earth Hour is an international movement to conserve energy started by the World Wildlife Foundation. Global monuments, as well as homes and institutions, will turn off their lights and participate in events, letter-writing campaigns and more to promote environmental awareness and climate action. In New York City, the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty will go dark. This year, NYU residence halls and prominent buildings will go dark, too!

Do It In The Dark.

Use the NYUGreen app to track your sustainable and energy-saving actions to earn points for your hall and compete for prizes.

On March 22, the NYUGreen app will be available for download in the App Store and on Google Play.
