Big savings from switching off
Savings can be ploughed back into education
Energy saving initiatives

Energy use in schools during unoccupied hours is going unchecked and is costing schools thousands of dollars each year.
Installing monitoring equipment and analysing the energy data ensures ESP can advise schools which loads to switch off during the long summer holidays.
Switching off is effective, cheap, and easy to do, and can deliver considerable savings.
