Major energy milestone hit in year four of school conservation program

As of the end of November 2012, North Branch Area Public Schools (NBAPS) reached a major milestone in its energy savings program; $500,000 in avoided energy costs. NBAPS joined Schools for Energy Efficiency (SEE) almost four years ago, and under the leadership of Becky Leuer, has steadily improved its energy usage. Along the way, the school district has received both 10 and 20 percent Energy Star ratings. The school district's participation in the program fostered a climate of energy consciousness and many improvements, such as eliminating personal refrigerators and replacing old, inefficient appliances, have been the result of cultural change. "Our 'energy elf,' Becky, has done a remarkable job leading this program for both staff and students. She is ever vigilant and has approached this challenge as she has all challenges, with a great deal of enthusiasm," said Supt. Deb Henton, adding, "But she did not do this alone. Staff and students alike have really embraced this program; we are a school district full of energy elves now." NBAPS plans to continue its improvement in energy usage in 2013, which saves tax dollars and allows resources to be directed at educating students, two things the community has expressed are important.
