How to switch off for Christmas

Energy-saving tips for the holidays

Support sustainability at Sheffield by switching off before you leave for the holidays:

  • Make sure monitors are switched off, not just on standby
  • Make sure all windows are closed
  • Unplug all chargers and other unnecessary equipment
  • Switch off the lights
  • Ask your department manager if there is any equipment that needs to be kept on
