Energy Savings Program 2014

The College of New Jersey will once again conduct an Energy Savings Program for eligible employees during the calendar year 2014. This program supports the College’s commitment to sustainability and energy savings by allowing the closure of College offices during non-academic periods. The program includes energy closures on 11 Fridays during the summer months and the week of winter break. Please review the following information for details about the program.

Designated Energy 2014 Holidays

The following seven holidays are designated as energy holidays for 2014:

Summer Closure

There will be five designated energy Friday closures during the summer plus six 4-day work weeks with Fridays off. During the first five weeks of energy Friday closures, employees will work their regular work schedule and have the Energy Friday off.
