On Friday (June 16), SUNY Oswego will again participate in Daylight Hour. The campus community is asked to turn off the lights from noon to 1 p.m. to demonstrate the availability of daylight and our impact on the electrical grid in a single hour. 
Organized by the Building Energy Exchange, the campaign aims to bring awareness to the use of energy in office spaces and encourages minimizing electric lighting in favor of natural daylight, said Jamie Adams, the Sustainability Planning Coordinator in the college's Office of Sustainability. Among the 300 plus participants, at least 15 SUNY campuses will power down their lighting systems for Daylight Hour.

Through initiatives like this, the support of the administration and the actions of the Sustainability Office, SUNY Oswego continues to promote and support sustainability initiatives across campus and the state of New York, Adams said. 

Adams invites participants to follow the Office of Sustainability on Twitter at @SustainOswego1, where the office will post social media updates on the event, and to use the hashtag #DaylightHour to post pictures while participating.
