Be a Power Agent for UCB (myPower campaign)

From a recent CED grad for those of you interested in energy/sustainability: I don't know if you have heard or know about the myPower campaign at Berkeley, which includes the campus energy dashboard that went live/public last week ( ). I worked on the technical aspects of the project, and I'm pretty excited to see it live finally because the whole project took longer than anticipated.  The campaign is also recruiting volunteers, which they call "Power Agents". If you know any CED student who is interested in energy/sustainability, I'd encourage them to sign up.  The informational flyer is here:  http://mypower.dreamhosters. com/pdf/PowerAgentsFlyer.pdf .
