ESS helps schools implement energy efficiency measures and leverage low- to no-cost options to pay for upgrades that yield long-term benefits. Schools reap the benefits of lower monthly utility bills and higher classroom comfort and safety, and students increase their energy literacy and gain a valuable understanding of how their behaviors influence consumption of resources.
