In an effort to reduce energy consumption and save money the Conejo Valley Unified School District has implemented a new Energy Conservation and Education Program. Rick Freed, our Energy Educator/Manager has been working under the guidance of a consulting firm, Energy Education, Inc. to develop a people oriented energy management program that is designed to become self-sustaining within four years. This is a comprehensive program which promotes conservation of electricity, gas, and water.
Many measures are being taken to reduce consumption mechanically, however additional savings also come from reductions due to the encreased energy awareness of our faculty, staff, and students. Our program emphasizes reduction during unoccupied times and promoting behavior changes from "energy concumers" to "energy savers". To facilitate these changes the CVUSD has established a number of Energy Management and Conservation Guidelines. These guidelines describe the detailed steps that are being taken to reduce energy consumption on all of our campuses.
