LCPS ENERGY EDUCATION TEAM PARTICIPATION:
The 2014 WEEC featured LCPS Energy Efficiency and Conservation auditing. The goal was for attendees to replicate LCPS best practices in their own businesses, governmental entities, or organizations. Attendees were exposed to the 13 types of audits that are performed in LCPS. Each audit type was briefly introduced and a more detailed focus was made on three of the audit types.

In 2009, the team presented a conference session highlighting the successful implementation of the PJM Demand Response Program at Stone Bridge High School. This pilot program benefitted the Regional Transmission Organization by allowing them to better manage electrical demand in their territory, and benefitted LCPS by allowing the school system to have a rebate for controlling demand levels at the school. As a result of this program, electrical demand levels at Stone Bridge High School went to their lowest levels ever. Click Here to see the file from the WEEC proceedings.
In 2008, the LCPS Energy Education Team presented a poster session focused on the successful use of a contest to design a light switch plate sticker that would inspire individuals to take personal accountability and responsibility for turning off the lights in an empty room. The goal was to reduce lighting of areas that were unoccupied for one hour per day. The expected results included a reduction in electrical costs of over $50,000.
