This project will aim to reduce the energy use of Western Washington University students living off campus. We will implement a peer-to-peer education program for the off-campus students to encourage them to reduce their environmental impact and save money by engaging in energy efficient behaviors and applying for free energy-related home assessment programs. The pilot program will officially begin in the Fall of 2015 and end during Winter 2016. At the end of the pilot program, we will measure our success and make the necessary changes to transition into a full program by Spring of 2016.
