Schools need help

Schools need help

  • Age

    • Average 42 years old

  • School condition

    • Differed maintenance

    • Inadequate staffing

    • Focus on new construction

    • Changing roles and requirements

  • Need to control costs

    • All costs are going up

    • Budgets are not.


Why school energy efficiency

Why School Energy Efficiency?

  • School energy budget

    • Schools spend over $6Billion a year on energy

    • Schools spend more on energy than textbooks and computers combined

    • 25% of that energy is wasted

    • The problem is getting worse - Per pupil energy cost rose 19% from 2007 to 2008

    • Energy cost savings impact on learning

  • Co-ops are energy solution providers.


Schools energy efficiency

Schools Energy Efficiency

  • Not a new idea

    • Many successful school energy efficiency programs

    • Government, non-profit, and for-profit

    • Info / awareness <=> Performance contracting.
