Attention Researchers: Adopt-A-Spot is Back for Fall 2019!

This six week campaign is intended to drive down energy demand and carbon emissions to help us reach our 2025 Carbon Neutrality goal. All staff and students in Mission Bay and Parnassus are invited to participate by adopting a piece of equipment in your laboratory and turning it off when not in use.

How does it work? Simple:

  1. Fill out the sign up sheet and choose one or more pieces of equipment from this list.
  2. We will meet with you to get appliance specs and give you stickers to personalize your adopted equipment.
  3. Over the course of 6 weeks, take care of your adopted equipment by turning it off or setting it to the lowest energy setting when not in use.
  4. We will perform weekly spot checks to identify adopters with the best energy savings. Those doing well will be entered into a weekly drawing for fun prizes.


Grand prize for the biggest saver is an Apple iPad!
