Former Davidson College President Tom Ross signed the Presidents' Climate Commitment pledging to reduce Davidson’s greenhouse gas emissions and conserve energy. Davidson has adopted an energy-efficient appliance purchasing policy requiring the purchase of Energy Star certified products where such ratings exist.
Therefore, we’re asking students and parents to assist in the College’s efforts by purchasing Energy Star rated products for use in residence hall rooms. Computers, televisions, DVD players, audio sound and theater systems, game stations, etc are a huge draw on electricity. Any assistance provided by bringing Energy Star rated electronics to campus will be greatly appreciated.
