Spring break is finally upon us, and many of us can’t wait to head out for some much needed R&R. But whether you’re heading home, hitting the beach somewhere warmer, taking a road trip or going off the grid for a few days of hiking, don’t forget that all the systems that make your dorm room comfortable when school is in session keep working even when you aren’t!
If you’re leaving campus for the week, take a second while you pack or prep to go over this mini-checklist. Help ensure that your dorm room or apartment is using as little energy as possible while you’re away.
Not only will this help reduce heat loss, it’s also a good precaution to take in case of heavy rain and wind.
If you’re able to control your room temperature, turn it down to about 65 degrees, or slightly cooler than you normally keep it. You’ll be able to quickly bring your room back up to temperature when you return. (But fingers crossed that it’ll be warm enough that you won’t need to!)

Alert Facilities to the leak before you leave. Small drips add up!

Don’t worry about your refrigerator, but if you have a coffee machine, toaster, alarm clock, desk lamp, hair dryer, game console or other appliance which doesn’t need to stay on during the break, unplug it to reduce phantom energy loss.

Are you a student interested in cleantech and energy? Do you need a summer internship? If yes, then look no further!
The Greentown Labs Cleantech Intern Fair is your perfect resource for connecting with innovative startups working to solve the world’s biggest energy and environmental challenges. A summer internship should be so much more than making copies and getting coffee, you should feel committed and proud of the impact you make on the company you spend your summer with.
Event Date: Thursday, March 3, 2016
Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund have two internship positions open. Both the Environmental Health and Justice Internship position and the Energy Internship position are available for the winter/spring semester of 2016 in the Boston office of Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund.
Top issue priorities include: preventing harm to our health from toxic chemicals, reducing water pollution from Massachusetts industries, promoting responsible growth of the energy efficiency and clean energy industries, advocating for Zero Waste policies in the City of Boston, and electing pro-environment candidates to public office. Ensuring that those most affected by environmental degradation have a voice at the table, and that solutions to environmental problems contribute to broader goals of justice for all, are central aspects of all our campaigns.
Global Warming Campus Internship
Make a difference on global warming and clean energy this fall.
Work from campus, 4-7 hours/week.
Global warming is happening and we’re seeing the effects all around us — from dangerous heat waves and droughts to last winter’s snowstorms. And scientists warn it could get much worse unless we act soon.
The good news: we have the solutions. Solar power is taking off, and we’re beginning to harvest energy from the winds off our shores.
But powerful interests, including utility companies and the fossil fuel industry, are threatening to stop clean energy in its tracks.
We’re looking for smart, hard-working students to build the people power it will take to repower Massachusetts with clean energy. Interns will work 4-7 hours per week from campus.
