We called our energy team, "The Green Team" and every Friday Assembly we will be coming up to tell you how successful we are at saving energy or power.
One person from the Green Team, is responsible to take turns everyday for looking around the classrooms and school to turn off all of the lights , heat pumps and devices that may be using unnecessary power. Our goal is to go back through our last 12 month history of power usage and cost in our school. Using this data, we will collect information on our power usage. Then we can compare previous bills with our new monthly bills to see if our actions are helping the school save money.
This data that we gather as Energy Detectives will also help us make decisions about the solar power gear that we need to run our school later in 2017.
Remember this is only the beginning, next Term the whole school will begin to join us in studying solar power and energy.
