Criteria and Awards Information

Criteria

The baseline for each school will be their consumption during the 2013-2014 school year. Each school’s KBTU energy consumption will be compared to their own KBTU energy consumption for the same time period, during the 2013-2014 school year. The school with the largest percentage of KBTU energy savings will win the prize.
