Robyn, a volunteer at Global Gifts, was nominated as an Energy Leader because of her dedication to helping co-workers and community members conserve energy
Energy Leader Achievements:
- She uses LED lights instead of fluorescent bulbs (that have mercury) or incandescent bulbs (that produce heat)
- She regularly uses a toaster oven instead of a full oven
- As her windows face West, she closes the shades and drapes at 3:00 pm when the sun is reaching her side of the building
- She unplugs appliances that are only needed occasionally, and always unplugs the rest as soon as she is finished using them
- She only runs her water distiller (that gives off heat) at night when 1) it is cooler, and 2) there is less demand on the grid – especially in the summer
We are so proud to have such an inspiring woman in our community!
