CHICO, Calif. - Chico State is reducing its hours as well as its carbon footprint this summer.

The university employs about 1,000 people during the summer. Starting this week, most staff members will transition to a four-day workweek as the campus will be closed on Fridays. 

During that 11-week period, the university will reduce its energy use by 330,980-kilowatt hours. It will also reduce staff commuting by 137,000 miles. 

Based on the PG&E rate structure, Chico State will save more than $34,000 on its electricity bill. 

The five-day work week will resume on August 19.
