THE DOWNLOAD: Energy from Coffee, Energy Savings

The campus has another new place to get coffee, and now nearly all of UC Davis is within a five-minute walk of a hot cup of java.

A Peet's Coffee kiosk opened earlier this month inside the International Center. It opens at 8 a.m. each weekday, and stays open until 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until 2 p.m. on Fridays. It also offers pastries and premade sandwiches.

Of course, that isn't the only place on campus to get coffee, and Dining Services has a new map showing just how many options UC Davis has.

The map, which is available on the Dining Services website, shows circles around Peet's and ASUCD coffee outlets, even the Hyatt Place hotel — to designate two-minute and five-minute walking times.

And if you're craving something more substantial, Dining Services is now updating a calendar of the food trucks on campus each day. The schedule lists food trucks in separate locations on campus — click on the name of the trucks and then "more details" to see where they'll be.

How much energy is saved over a holiday?

Energy saved over Veteran's DayAs the campus sat quiet Monday (Feb. 19) for Presidents Day, it was saving energy. Heaters were turned down in empty buildings, reducing costs for the campus. When that happened over the three-day Veterans Day weekend last fall, the campus saved nearly $5,000.

The Energy Conservation Office outlines how much is saved over various holiday weekends — and how much comes from steam, chilled water and electricity costs — on its blog.
