School districts wanting to save money and energy may want to take a look at this new manual prepared by Princeton Energy Resources International for the US Department of Energy. School Operations and Maintenance: Best Practices for Controlling Energy Costs discusses setting up an effective energy management program and winning management support, provides a wide range of technical opportunities, and summarizes real world experiences of six school districts across the country. The Alliance to Save Energy participated in the preparation of the manual, which was also co-sponsored by the Association of School Business Officials International, the Higher Education Facilities Managers and the National School Plant Administrators Association.
