15 Indiana schools have been selected to take part in the Energy Action in Schools program. Each institution will form “energy action patrols” made up of students, teachers and administrators who will work to find ways to conserve energy in their buildings. Office of Energy Development Spokeswoman Megan Murray says it’s really kind of a behavioral program that teaches students, teachers and faculty how to identify ways that they might be using extra energy that they are not aware of. Murray says they do receive feedback from schools.
“They provide us with a yearly report so they have provided us with a kind of a summary of the different schools,” she says. “They also have an online tracking system that they encourage schools to use and they help facilitate them setting that up that tracks their energy saving”
