Energy Saving Tips for Students
Turn off lights when not in use--lighting accounts for nearly 50% of the electric bill in most schools.
- Form a student energy patrol to ensure lights are out when rooms are empty (check classrooms, the cafeteria, the auditorium, etc.)
- Have students make signs and stickers to remind people to turn off the lights when they leave a room.
Heating and Cooling
Check that windows are closed when the air conditioning is on.
Make sure that vents are not covered up.
