Last year, Edison spent almost $109,000 for site electricity.  We hope to cut that by over 5% this year.

Edison Energy News

Edison was featured in the SRP newsletter for our work to promote energy conservation.  Thanks to all of our staff for their help in reducing Edison's power usage.

Edison is participating in the SRP School of Energy Program. The SRP School of Energy is an interactive program designed to engage teachers, students, administration, and facilities personnel in energy conservation efforts by changing behaviors and improving facilities efficiency. SRP has provided our coaches with training and classroom resources designed to increase energy literacy, conservation, and awareness at our school. We plan to accomplish a reduction of energy consumption at our school through staff and student education, hands-on classroom activities, and positive changes to energy consumption behavior on our school campus. 

By increasing energy awareness in staff, students, and the community we are all able to make smarter choices about how we use energy. Reduced energy usage shrinks our impact on the environment and has long term benefits the entire world can benefit from. By spending less on energy our school will have more money for the things that matter most and make for a better future as a result!
