School Projects in Arizona, Minnesota
Tucson Electric Power (TEP) is running energy efficiency upgrades aimed at increasing efficiency and lowering costs to more than 24 schools in its Arizona service area, according to the company.
The press release says that the project is run through the TEP Schools Energy Efficiency Pilot Program. It was approved in February by the Corporation Commission (ACC). The pilot aims to help schools without financial resources make the changes. The $1 million program is funded by a demand side management surcharge on monthly bills. The program received applications from 196 schools and 28 charter school organizations representing 35 schools.
The Elk River (MN) Area School Board has approved an energy policy that is aimed at reducing the $2.8 million annual budget by 20 percent. That would equate to $500,000 in savings. The savings, according to the story in the Star News, would be reinvested in educational endeavors.
