New Guide Helps School Districts Implement Green, Energy Efficient Strategies
A new guide published by Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) can help school districts and other building owners save significant money with little to no capital investments by implementing techniques that keep a building operating at peak performance.
The Northeast Collaborative for High Performance Schools (NE-CHPS) Operations & Maintenance Guide contains strategies that will help schools reduce their operating costs, as well as lead to healthier indoor air, greater energy efficiency and environmental benefits, and overall improvements in the learning environment for students and staff.
The guide comes at a critical time in the economy as many districts move away from building new schools and seek to cut costs and implement energy efficiency and conservation strategies in their existing schools. Developed by regional stakeholders, with input from state departments of education and efficiency programs, the guide is available for free online.
