Keystone Energy Efficiency Alliance: Winners Of 2018 Schools, School District Energy Efficiency Awards

The Keystone Energy Efficiency Alliance Education Fund Monday announced the winners of this year’s Moving to the Head of the Class Awards!  To date, the winning schools and districts in this statewide program have saved over 10,000,000 kWh and $1,300,000 on their energy bills!
The winners are--
-- First Place: Honesdale High School, Wayne Highlands School District, Wayne County;
-- Second Place: Steckel Elementary, Whitehall-Coplay School District, Lehigh County;
-- Best School District: Corry Area School District, Erie County; and
-- 2018 Energy Challenge Winner: Reading School District, Berks County.
These four schools displayed a commitment to energy efficiency, exceptional savings, creative low-cost programs or an exceptional need to remove barriers to energy savings.
As winners of KEEF’s annual award, they will receive a no-cost district–wide portfolio assessment from Warren Energy Engineering.
This “before the energy audit” assessment includes a current state report, identifies behavioral and operational best practices, and assists district decision-makers with specific next steps.
Each awardee will receive prizes that help facilitate these upgrades to save their districts energy and money, which can help each district stretch their annual operations budgets.
Once the benchmarking has been completed, these schools have the opportunity host VIP tours to showcase the commitment their students, teachers, and administration have made to energy efficiency.
Invited guests will include legislators, representatives of electric utilities, and businesses involved in helping the schools complete program work, as well as local press.

KEEA Education Fund will also extend this opportunity to save and learn beyond these four schools.
This year, every K-12 school district in Pennsylvania is welcome to apply for a no-cost portfolio assessment provided by Warren Energy Engineering.
For selected districts, collaborative and guided engagements will be conducted with decision-makers to identify appropriate options for assistance in becoming more energy efficient.
Schools statewide will receive details about the application process this week.
