Going Green

Everyone’s efforts are what have made our energy conservation program so successful. One person doesn’t make a behavior-based energy program successful. It takes all of us being energy users and savers. The OSU in Tulsa Energy Conservation Program has saved more than $3 million - one decision and one cowboy at a time. Thank you for being part of that success!
