Targeted Audit

You can learn more on how your school uses energy on a daily basis by applying for a Bright Energy Solutions® Targeted Energy Audit Program. A team of energy engineers will conduct the cost-shared energy audit that will include analysis of heating and cooling systems, lighting, and structural elements such as roofing and building envelopes.

Schools will pay 50 percent of the audit fee, up to $5,000. The school is eligible for a reimbursement of the balance 50 percent audit fee upon completion of all measures recommended in the audit, with a simple payback of two years or less.

Applications will determine eligibility measured by achieving a 75 or less ENERGY STAR benchmark score and proof of financial capability to meet the cost-sharing criteria.

Energy Tips
Washing Machine
When shopping for a new clothes washer, look for the ENERGY STAR label. ENERGY STAR clothes washers clean clothes using 50 percent less energy than standard washers.

Phantom Loads
Your electronics--such as TVs, phone chargers, and DVD players--use energy even when turned off. To save energy, unplug the gadgets. 75 percent of the electricity used to power home electronics is consumed while they're turned off.

Attic

Install rafter and soffit vents to maintain a steady airflow, removing heat from the attic and keeping your home cooler in the summer. In winter, proper ventilation and insulation helps keep the attic cold, reducing the potential for melting and refreezing that can cause harmful ice dams on the roof and gutters.
