Surrey Schools’ winter campaign urging staff to 'Turn if off before you take off' was a major success with 76 schools and centres taking part.
Overall, Surrey Schools' December 2014 electricity consumption was down 4.6 per cent compared to December 2013, saving the district about $15,000. Efforts to turn off and unplug electrical items made up a significant portion of those savings.
Now, the district is urging to staff to once again turn off and unplug electrical items where possible to reduce phantom power use while schools are closed for spring break. Phantom power is the small amount of energy drawn by electronic devices even when they’re not being used. The same rules regarding what can be turned off and what can be unplugged that applied during the winter break also apply this time. (Link requires staff login)
