Students in the Green Engineering Academy at Livermore High School (LHS) are looking for ways to make their school even greener by reducing energy usage. Over the summer, several students worked with KW Engineering on a facilities energy audit of the LHS campus and several area schools.

The audit uncovered about $35,000 in potential savings from simple changes, such as upgrading to more efficient light bulbs and computers, installing programmable thermostats, eliminating unnecessary lighting, and running pumps on the school pool only as needed. For the students, it was a chance to put into practice some of the engineering skills they have been learning in the classroom.
