Happy New (School) Year!

It's a New School Year and a great time to make a resolution to save energy! Teachers, be a model of energy efficiency for your students by practicing energy conservation everyday in your classroom. Students, don't forget to turn off  the monitor when you are finished working on a computer or if you are the last one leaving the classroom, be sure to turn off the lights. Working together, we can make a difference, thanks for doing your part.
Happy New School Year, Everyone!

Today's Energy Thought

Leaving a ceiling fan on while you are not in a room will help keep it cool.

Scroll down to check your answer...

FALSE! Ceiling fans cool people, not rooms.  Unlike air conditioning units, fans are simply recirculating air and creating flow – that slight breeze we feel cools us down, but does not actually alter the air temperature.  Save energy by turning off the air conditioner and turning on the ceiling fan while you are in a room…but keep both the fan and AC off when you leave!
