Keep the Grid Reliable

This summer Boston College expects to receive electricity grid alerts from our provider during heat waves, and we are asking all members of the BC community to play an active role in reducing campus energy consumption. By lowering campus electricity consumption during peak usage periods, Boston College will help to avoid area power outages, which can be dangerous to at-risk populations. To help BC do its part to increase the reliability of the electrical grid, members of the community are requested to reduce their individual energy usage.

Check out our video with tips on how to easily conserve energy!

If a peak is predicted, Facilities will send out a grid alert to the BC community. For more information, visit
