At School Tips

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that public schools alone spend more than $6 billion per year on energy costs. With cost-effective building upgrades, those costs can be reduced— freeing up valuable funds for other school needs. Schools are also a great place to involve students and faculty in the energy conservation process, from incorporating energy use into classroom lessons to promoting positive habits that can make a difference, like powering down computers and turning off lights each day. Many common sense habits you follow at home will help your school save energy too. Take a look at the tips and resources on this page to learn more about the changes that can add up and go a long way to reducing your school’s energy use.
