Energy Mentors are leaders who encourage other members of the campus community to reduce NAU’s environmental impact.
- Encourage fellow faculty and staff members to adopt key energy saving behaviors
- Facilitate the distribution of information involving energy conservation
- Attend and support Energy Mentor or other sustainability events
- Incorporate the 3 pillars of sustainability into daily operations
We will teach you how to help conserve energy by adopting two key sustainability behaviors: Flip the Switch and Reduce the Juice! By practicing these strategies yourself and by helping to teach others, our goal of conserving energy consumption will be achieved!
