2017 Energy Holiday Schedule

The College of New Jersey will once again conduct an Energy Savings Program for eligible employees during the 2017 calendar year.  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 10 Fridays during the summer months and the week of winter break. Please review the following information for details about the program.

Designated Energy 2017 Holidays

The following seven holidays are designated as energy holidays for 2017:

Presidents Day Monday, February 20
Good Friday Friday, April 14

Eligible employees who work all seven energy holidays will earn 10.50 days of Energy Savings Program leave time (1 ½ energy leave days earned for each energy holiday worked).


Summer Closure

There will be five designated energy Friday closures during the summer plus five 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.

During the five 4-day work weeks, employees will work an extended schedule Monday through Thursday. An extended day would typically be eight hours and forty-five minutes for employees on a thirty five hour per week work schedule and ten hours per day for employees on a forty hour per week work schedule.
