Energy costs in schools are the second-highest expense after salaries, even exceeding the money spent on supplies and books. Wisconsin K-12 public school facilities spend more than $175 million on energy costs each year. While schools have actively reduced their energy use by 20% since 2006, there is still over $40 million in potential energy savings to be realized with improved technology and new operational strategies.
FOCUS ON ENERGY® provides financial incentives for equipment upgrades that deliver measurable energy and financial savings for school facilities. Focus on Energy’s team of dedicated Energy Advisors are here to help your school achieve its energy-saving potential.
