      • Increases Energy Awareness of Personnel
      • Serves as a Educational Tool
      • Serves as an Example for the Community
    SchoolDude University 2009
  • Does HP School = Energy Efficient School ? SchoolDude University 2009
    • NO
    • People operate buildings, buildings do not operate themselves
    • Energy awareness and knowledge are the keys to success
    • EDUCATE! EDUCATE! EDUCATE!
  • SchoolDude University 2009 Energy Management Here; EM Now – Means Tapping the Energy Waste in Schools And Remember--
  • Bottom-line SchoolDude University 2009 In today’s world, improving the energy efficiency of educational facilities should be the goal of the district to support the nation’s goal of Energy Independence. EM Now; EM Here; Payless -- should be heard throughout the nation’s schools. Will this be heard in your schools? Explore the possibilities and potential! It’s Not Rocket Science
