Energy Efficiency and Power Quality in Schools

Addressing energy efficiency in schools, the U.S. Department of Energy says, “For existing schools, implementing energy-efficient operations and maintenance strategies can enable school districts to save as much as 20% in energy costs, extend the life of equipment, and improve the overall physical environment in their school facilities.” DOE further comments about energy efficiency planning, “Addressing O&M considerations at the start of a project can contribute greatly to improved working environments, higher productivity, and reduced energy and resource costs.”
