WGP has embarked on an energy monitoring and energy saving programme with the assistance of EECA and IP Torque. You were given a quick overview of the scheme at the staff meeting yesterday.
The school has entered into the “conservation cup” competition, see http://conservationcup.co.nz/
This competition has several aspects to it apart from the main prize of demonstrating the largest percentage decrease in power usage over a month long period from 27th August to the 24th September. Other aspects include power saving signage, posters and short films with a power conservation theme. The school has its own dashboard that may be accessed via this link: http://buildingdashboard.net/torqueip/#/torqueip/whangaparaoacollege_1
I urge everyone to have a look at the dashboard, become familiar with it, show your classes the school’s power usage live via our own monitoring equipment that has already been installed, and start a conversation around power saving in particular but conservation in general.
