Students across Canada will gather baseline data on energy consumption at school, identify key actions to achieve the greatest energy savings, measure the impact of their actions using real data, and share their stories widely online and in local media. This program is the very epitome of excellent education. It helps schools, the environment and empowers students to:
- Become energy efficiency experts and future energy managers.
- Develop their competencies, innovative mindsets, and workplace skills, preparing them for careers in a low carbon economy.
- Drive down the use of electricity, gas, and water at school, at home, and in their communities.
- Help reduce greenhouse gases, utility bills, and carbon levy payments.
