Saving energy and money just makes good sense. Here are a couple of tips we can use here in the school to help out:
1) Turn off lights in the conference rooms, breakrooms, and offices when you leave.
2) Unplug appliances that are not in use (i.e., pencil sharpeners, hole punchers, coffee pots, toasters). They draw power even as they sit.
3) Keep thermostats set at a reasonable temperature.
4) Turn off computer monitors and peripherals, like speakers, over night.
