Energy Use in P-20 Communities
2015: Renewed Commitment to Conservation
The graphs below depict Annual Use (in kWh) and Annual Cost for each P-20 Community, as well as Average Cost/Use per sq. ft throughout our district. The subsequent bar graph provides a breakdown of each school that makes up the P-20 Community and how each school compares to others in terms of cost and energy use.
Research shows that behavior change (turning lights off, etc.) can account for 15-20% energy cost savings.
If Community E reduces its energy use by 15%, they could collectively save the district more than $146,000!
Think our schools can do better? Have them sign up for the 2015 APS Energy Challenge: a student-led competition geared towards energy saving activities starting February 2015.

Building Dashboard & APS Energy Challenge 2015
This tool will also help to facilitate the Spring 2015 district wide Energy Challenge competition, where schools compete to reduce energy use by 20%. Those schools who participate will win CA$H rewards and the opportunity to be featured as the top Green School for Aurora Public Schools.
