Energy Wise, Energizing Education

Energy Matters!

Energy does matter and Albuquerque Public Schools is committed to an energy program that focuses on energy conservation awareness, behavior, and education all schools. APS has persistently adopted many good conservation practices but is now reaching higher, deeper, and wider. The District’s Water and Energy Conservation Committee’s (WECC) goal to reduce water and energy uses by 20% by the 2023-24 school year and is asking for your support and participation in making this a more complete energy plan that really matters.

Energizing Education

APS’ Energy Conservation Plan’s education component, under the guidance of the APS Energy Educator, teaches students about the Science of Energy and motivates them to gladly participate in driving APS’ conservation culture at their schools. Students are becoming more aware and knowledgeable of the importance of energy conservation as well providing solutions in APS to reduce its carbon footprint. When students take a role in developing and managing their schools energy conservation plan, they are empowered to make a difference!

“Kids Teaching Kids”

The APS Energy Educator trains and assists students and teachers to significantly reduce energy by using energy efficient technologies, monitoring, and managing energy consumption. With the Kids Teaching Kids model, teachers learn to embrace student leadership in the classroom. The empowered students learn how to develop a their school’s
comprehensive energy management plan and promote an energy conscious culture with a focus on Energy Literacy.
Kids Teaching Kids is also a large part of the sustainability of the Energy Conservation Plan as they are always present; the pipeline of energy literate students is never expended.
