  WCU Energy Conservation Policy  
 
 

        To reduce energy consumption and costs during the spring and fall,  the University implemented a policy of no heating or no cooling providing normal weather conditions prevail. This is a redistribution of that policy which was promulgated in May 1991. Weather conditions and forecasts will be monitored closely by the Facilities Management staff and accommodations made for temperature extremes as follows:
