Reducing power consumption

Here is the start of some ideas to reduce your school's power consumption.

Remember, anything which heats uses the most power! (Heat pumps, electric jugs, ovens..)

  • Turn all your computers and monitors off at night
  • Turn your heating down to their lowest setting overnight during winter (usually 16 degrees). In winter get the first person arriving to turn the heating up an hour or so before class and the teachers can turn it down at 09:00
  • Make sure the pupils don't leave doors open when the heating is on!
