Mankato Area Public Schools' West High School received $5,000 grant to help reduce energy usage

Mankato Area Public Schools' West High School's "YES! Team" received a $5,000 grant from the Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) to reduce the school's electrical usage on hallway lighting by nearly 50 percent by replacing more than 700 lightbulbs with energy efficient Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). It's estimated that $3,000 will be saved annually. The award is one of 35 grants given to innovative renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in communities across Minnesota. 

 

"It's exciting to provide an opportunity for students to help make a difference and educate others about energy usage, costs and how to reduce personal energy consumption," says Eric Koser. 

 

"CERTs provides these seed grants with two primary objectives in mind," says Lissa Pawlisch, CERTs director. "First, to encourage implementation of community-based clean energy projects across the state. Second, to provide an educational forum for energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and their economic, community and ecological benefits."

 

Through approval of the school district’s previous referendum, East High School was able to apply energy efficiency improvements when it was remodeled. Updated heating and cooling controls help reduce energy usage and electrical and plumbing code updates enhance efficiencies and safety. LED lights help reduce energy usage in conjunction with harvesting natural light.
