Pay attention to energy efficiency and make your budget go further

Across the province, school and their boards are exploring ways to use electricity more efficiently.  Since electricity is a controllable operating expense, any energy reductions you can achieve will result almost immediately in corresponding reductions in operating costs. These savings could also mean more money for other initiatives. 
Your local electric utility can help you find these savings. For instance, lighting is a prime target for electricity conservation and lighting is where almost 40 percent of an institutional building's electricity is consumed. Add in the savings that may be found in heating and cooling upgrades, and you'll be on your way to lowering your costs even more. 
In some cases, the electricity savings achieved could cover the cost of installing new equipment in less than two years. And now, your local electric utility can offer financial incentives that could shorten that pay-back period even further.
Pay attention to energy efficiency and you'll see the results in your operating costs. And your staff, students and parents will know your organization is well managed and cares about the environment.
