Energy Savings Program
The Energy Savings Program is one of the most appreciated and valued perquisites available to TCNJ staff and enables TCNJ to reduce costs associated with energy usage by closing campus on Fridays during the months of May, June, July and August. In addition, administrative operations are closed during the last week of December. For every energy holiday worked, eligible employees who regularly work seven hours per day accrue 10.5 hours which may be applied to certain summer Fridays, and to winter break. Employees who regularly work eight hours per day accrue 12 hours of energy time each energy holiday to be used on summer Fridays and winter break.
Employees have the equivalent of a half energy day that she/he may schedule during the calendar year.
There are ten summer Fridays in 2018.
Summer Fridays When Accrued Energy Leave is Used
Beginning the last Friday in May, through the first week of July, employees enjoy a four day work week (regular hours) with Friday (or the holiday – Memorial Day or Independence Day) as a day off. Accrued energy holidays are applied to these summer Fridays. Energy holidays are state of NJ observed holidays on which TCNJ remains open for operation. (Please see the Holiday and Energy Leave Calendar.)
Summer Fridays During Extended Four Day Work Weeks
Beginning the second week of July, through the second week of August, employees work an extended day week, Monday through Thursday, and enjoy Friday off.
Five energy leave days shall be applied to the winter break.
