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 Holidayworkday worked, eligible employees accrue 1.5 times their regularly scheduled work hours which are applied to nine Energy Days used over designated dates. Below are the holidays in 2022 you are required to work in order to earn Energy Days. In the event you do not work on one of the “Energy Holidays” below, please ensure you communicate this with your supervisor.
