Saving electricity

July 19, 2006

Dear AUB faculty and staff,

It is very important for all to realize that fuel supplies are very limited in Lebanon.  For this reason, please make all possible efforts to conserve energy.  Turn off all unnecessary lights and air-conditioning in offices, clinics, and residences.  Raise temperatures on the air-conditioning that you do use.  Please be aware that if the situation does not improve, energy rationing will go into effect.

Thank you for your help in this crucial effort to maintain our operations.

Acting President
