Energy Success for High School - posted October 30th, 2011
Hethersett High School students are celebrating their success in helping Norfolk schools reduce energy usage and carbon emissions.
In a joint project involving the
National Trust, Norfolk County Council and NPS Property Consultants, the
school's e-futures group achieved an annual reduction in usage of electricity of
7.5% that resulted in the school being awarded £12,500 towards
energy-saving equipment. This is 6.5% below the benchmark for a similar type and size
of school . In one Hethersett
High reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 581kg compared to last year –
enough to fill 1,937 wheelie bins.
