BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The third annual IU Energy Challenge, set to take place March 25-April 22, 2010, is expanding dramatically. The competition to save energy and water began in 2008 with 10 residence halls competing; in 2009, 18 Greek houses joined the mix. This year all 11 residence halls, 26 Greek houses and eight academic buildings will participate.

The eight buildings to pilot the academic portion of the Energy Challenge include: Chemistry, Geological Sciences and Survey, Jordan Hall, the Business Building, Myers Hall, Simon Hall, the School of Public and Environmental Affairs Building and the Herman B Wells Library. The buildings were selected for the pilot study based on the availability of utility data and faculty and staff support.
