Wisconsin Renew Our Schools Competition

Renew Our Schools is a 6-week energy conservation competition that is offered to Wisconsin K-12 public and private schools in partnership with Resource Central and Focus on Energy. Competitions start in Fall and late Winter each year. 

Small cohorts of similar-sized schools compete for cash prizes as teacher-led student teams implement energy actions in their school and monitor real-time electricity use of their school buildings with an eGauge energy datalogger that gets installed by a licensed electrician before the start of the competition.

KEEP supports participating schools by mailing professional-quality energy measurement tools to each participating school, coordinating a site visit from KEEP and Focus on Energy staff to the school to conduct a preliminary school energy audit, and providing ongoing support for teachers as they implement energy education lessons during the competition.
