Energy Methodology Education
On the energy efficiency side of things, our role involves helping teachers and administrators develop resources that introduce children to sustainable practices at a young age. In doing so, we create a generation that is more sensitive to the impact of their actions on the environment.
The program stresses the importance of small, everyday activities such as shutting down their computer when not in use, or encouraging parents to switch to CFL light bulbs. By building habits that last a lifetime, we are actively creating greener communities and a more environmentally sustainable future for us all.
Creating healthier schools is the other component of the ECO 12® program. This involves identifying building components and issues that affect children’s well-being. We perform energy audits that identify air quality problems such as fiberglass and VOC off-gassing, heating and cooling schedules that drive up utility use, and more.
Recognizing the need to do more with a smaller budget, we aim to provide solutions that deliver the most value for the least investment. In doing so, we are making schools healthier and helping lower overhead costs.
