The "Cut the Current" energy challenge is an annual competition between residence halls on the CSB campus to see who can reduce their energy usage the most. Data is tracked for three weeks, and the residence hall that reduces their energy usage the most wins a prize day! With energy reduction as much as 17% per residence hall, this is another way CSB works to be sustainable.
