1 GREEN SCHOOLS’ COMMITEE: ENERGY

2  There are many different forms of energy.  There are many efficient and renewable ways to create energy.  One is by using turbines.  The wind blows the turbine.  Another way is using water.  Turbines turn under the water.  The water turns the turbines.

3  Solar energy is another renewable source of energy. It uses solar panels to create energy.

5  We should be using renewable sources of energy more than fossil fuels like gas,coal,peat and oil.  Most of the fossil fuels we use are imported. We should be spending our money on solar panels or turbines and other renewable sources of energy.

6  Fossil fuels are harmful to the environment. They can cause holes in the ozone layer and greenhouse gases, such as Carbon Dioxide, which can melt ice caps.

7  We have worked on trying to turn off lights at a certain time of day.  We have been reminding teachers to turn off laptops etc. at breaks.  We have turned down the thermostat.  We have turned the heating off at an earlier time.

8  We have energy busters in the school that walk around the school and check if laptops, whiteboard and lights are off.  We are writing letters to Phil Hogan, the Minister for the Environment.  Make sure that we have draft excluders for every room that needs them in the school.

9 We need to inform the community about:  Using renewable sources of energy.  Tips on how to save energy at home.  what-you-can-do.345.html what-you-can-do.345.html  p?contentid=1510 p?contentid=1510

10  Turn off appliances when you are going to bed/not using them.  Don‘t put them on standby.  Shut down computers when you are not using them.  Keep windows and doors closed.  Turn lights off and open blinds and let natural light in.  Don’t have the heat on for a long time.

11  Turning your thermostat down by 1°C can reduce your heating bills by 10%.  Using energy efficient light bulbs uses ¼ of electricity as normal light bulbs and last up to 12 times longer!  We can all make a difference!  Stay green and energy lean!  Holy Trinity Green Schools’ Committee, over and out.
