Contributing to Statewide Energy Savings

Renew Our Schools empowers students through an educational journey to grasp essential energy concepts while initiating tangible behavioral changes to curb energy consumption within their school. Through engaging in hands-on activities, students can compete for cash prizes by actively working to decrease their electricity usage, associated costs, and carbon footprint.

"Renew Our Schools encourages students to become catalysts for positive change in their communities by fostering environmental conservation principles," commented Heather Feigum, Program Manager at Focus on Energy.

The Wisconsin schools in the Spring 2024 Challenge are:

  • Anthony Acres Charter
