School pupils to learn how much energy they use

Tue, 24 Jan 2012

Students on the Island are being encouraged to monitor how much energy they use.

A number of organisations have teamed up to provide primary school pupils with energy monitors as part of the eco schools climate initiative.

The Departments of Infrastructure, Education and Children and Economic Development are behind the scheme, along with the Manx Electricity Authority.

It's hope the monitors will raise awareness of how much energy the students use.

The DEC has an annual electricity bill for its schools of over £870,000.

It's hoped by teaching children how much lighting and heating costs it will reduce fuel consumption, and have a knock-on effect at home.
