Where Are Schools Consuming the Most Energy?


According to Energy Star, educational facilities in the United States spend more than $14 billion on energy every year. They also estimate that as much of 30% (or $4.2 billion) of this energy is not being used efficiently. This is because the average school building is 42-years old and not designed to meet today’s modern energy standards.

So, where is this money being spent? According to Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, here are the areas where schools are consuming the most energy:

  • Lighting – 26%
  • Cooling – 26%
  • Office Equipment – 20%
  • Miscellaneous – 10%
  • Ventilation – 7%
  • Space Heating – 5%
  • Refrigeration – 4%
  • Cooking – 1%
  • Water Heating – 1%

If you help operate a school, do you know where your energy is being used? You can with the power monitoring equipment available from Electro Industries.

Using a series of submeters and our proprietary software, you can view your facility’s energy consumption in real time. Better yet, you can actually pinpoint energy usage down to specific buildings on campus, floors, and pieces of equipment.

With this information available to you, it is easy to identify inefficiencies, and develop power-savings programs to reduce your total energy usage. Many of our customers report energy savings of 20% or higher!
