LCPS ENERGY EDUCATION TEAM PARTICIPATION:
The 2010 WEEC featured the ENERGY STAR 2010 Partner of the Year Award. The goal of the presentation was to encourage participation in ENERGY STAR with some emphasis on many of the available tools that have proven themselves to be useful for LCPS. Click Here to see the file from the WEEC proceedings
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.
