Our target was to reduce our electrical consumption by 10% during a one month period (19th March – 27th April 2012). We did this to reduce the amount of electrical energy the school wastes and the impact this has on the environment.
During this time we reduced our consumption by a staggering 10.36%.
Week 1: 23.89%
Week 2: 12.35%
Week 3: 16.74%
Week 4: -11.54%
This is how we did it;

E - Environment

Could use some of the resources at the bottom of this page to help promote energy efficiency in their work place and home.
Will encourage all students to S.A.V.E. and keep all electrical appliances that are not being used turned off.
Will be experimenting with the computer network to make it run in the most energy efficient way possible.
Will be making sure that lights that have been left on are turned off.
Will distribute further energy saving tips to parents, students and teachers and will keep everyone informed on how we are getting on.
Please do your bit to help us make a difference!
