A Model for Education: Energy-Water Consumption Decision Making.
Bontrager, Ralph L.; Hubbard, Charles W.
Public schools are in a position to convince society-at-large of the national energy problem. There is a direct relationship between energy costs to the schools and the type of educational programs they can provide. While waiting for a national energy policy with a section devoted to schools, districts can calculate the amount and cost of energy per pupil by utilizing utilities' records, enrollment and attendance figures, and building measurements. A number of energy-saving techniques are outlined. A model of a districtwide energy conservation plan is presented. Appendixes contain a bibliography and examples of procedures followed in the plan.
