Public Schools Energy Conservation Measures, Report Number 4: Hindman Elementary School, Hindman, Kentucky.
American Association of School Administrators, Arlington, VA.
Presented is a study identifying and evaluating opportunities for decreasing energy use at Hindman Elementary School, Hindman, Kentucky. Methods used in this engineering investigation include building surveys, computer simulations and cost estimates. Findings revealed that modifications to the school's boiler, temperature controls, electrical system, and building could result in substantial energy savings. This analysis represents part of the first phase of a five-part Saving Schoolhouse Energy Project initiated by the American Association of School Administrators and partially funded by the Federal Energy Administration. The project's focus is upon assessing the cost effectiveness of retrofitting schools, primarily with "off-the-shelf" hardware. (WB)
