Helping New Hampshire schools save energy and money
The New Hampshire EnergySmart Schools program is supporting K-12 public and private
schools across the state pursue energy efficiency initiatives to control energy
use and save money. [See list of participating school districts
The program utilizes an energy benchmarking system designed to help you:
- Understand the energy consumption and cost trends at
each of your school buildings;
- Learn how your buildings are performing compared to
other schools locally and nationally;
- Identify opportunities for improving operations and
reducing costs; and
- Take advantage of resources to implement efficiency
improvements and save money.
As a new school year gets underway amidst continued times of economic uncertainty,
I encourage all schools across the State to participate in the New Hampshire EnergySmart
Schools program and learn how they can save energy and money.
