Plan Now for Power Reduction Test on Wednesday: 7/18

Posted on July 10, 2018 | Filed under General News

Allegheny’s annual Load Drop Test, a component of our demand response program participation, is scheduled for next Wednesday, July 18, from 3 to 4 p.m. It is essential that all faculty, staff and students on campus help us reduce our electricity consumption during this hour. Starting at 2:30 p.m., please shut down as many electrical devices as possible and leave them off until after 4 p.m. You should power down excess lighting, computers, printers, copiers, fans, air conditioners, etc. Plan ahead: Consider scheduling a departmental meeting during this time so all employees can shut down their individual offices and come together in one space or use the time to tackle that reading or filing you’ve been putting off. Your participation helps us demonstrate our readiness during an actual emergency event (brownout/blackout) and helps us earn significant financial incentives–over $32,000 last year. For an explanation of demand response programs and their benefits as well as details of how you can help, see the Demand Response Guidelines here.

Fall Student Job Postings

Posted on July 1, 2018 | Filed under General News

Supervisors who wish to hire students to work for them during the fall semester need to submit the Job Posting Description Forms by July 13. This will provide supervisors with the Supervisor Section of the Student Employment Form for the fall semester as well as advertise for any open positions. Supervisors can complete this form by visiting the Financial Aid Student Employment website and selecting “Academic Year Job Posting for Supervisors” in the right-hand menu. Our office will be sending out information about the job applications to the first-year class by mid-July, so you can expect applications shortly before classes start in August.

Packages for Delivery

Posted on June 26, 2018 | Filed under General News

Physical Plant would like to remind staff, faculty and administration about the weight limits on packages and marking packages properly. If you receive a package at the post office and it is less than 25 pounds, then you are responsible for retrieving that package. If you receive multiple packages (at the same time and not over a few days) then Physical Plant will deliver them for you. However, if packages are being left in the post office until a few accumulate, we will not be able to guarantee their delivery. Also, please make sure to mark packages with your building’s address and a name, not just 520 North Main Street, as this creates a lot of work and confusion when trying to figure out where the packages go. Many packages marked only 520 North Main end up at Physical Plant and this can be time consuming sorting them out. We thank you for your cooperation with these efforts.

Items are not posted on Saturday or Sunday except for Safety Alerts. Items to be posted on Monday must be received by 4 p.m. the previous Friday.
