|Saving on Your Energy Bills
Schools spend A LOT of money on energy. In-fact, it’s second only to personnel costs. Improving building energy performance can ease tight school budgets and lead to numerous other benefits, such as reduced absentee rates. The first step is understanding how much energy is being consumed through the process of benchmarking. Then, the information collected can be used to illuminate a path forward for investment in projects with multiple benefits. This session will highlight how and why buildings should be benchmarked, as well as new technologies being installed in schools to reduce energy costs and improve the learning environment.
