Energy Savings Program
The Energy Savings Program is one of the most appreciated and valued benefits available to TCNJ staff. The program enables TCNJ to reduce energy costs by closing campus on certain Fridays during the academic summer months and during the last week of December.
For every full Energy Holiday worked, eligible employees accrue 1.5 times their regularly scheduled work hours. Accrued time from working Energy Holidays is dispersed over designated dates. Below are the holidays in 2023 you must work to participate in the Energy Savings Program.
For any Energy Holidays Worked, no action is required. If you do not work on an Energy Holiday that is listed below, you are required to request this day off in Oracle Cloud under Absences as “Energy Day Not Worked.” This request should occur prior to your requested day. Your supervisor would approve this request and your hours would be adjusted in Oracle Cloud – Absences
