Collinswood Elementary has reduced its total energy use for each of the last 3 years. School maintenance staff members have kept up with preventive maintenance measures, such as changing air filters and keeping the mechanical equipment operating well.


School staff and students have done the most to reduce energy consumption. They have been diligent in turning off lights, keeping doors closed, reporting problems, and reminding one another to practice conservation.


During the 2009-2010 school year, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools began communicating with all schools about energy use. Each school receives a monthly report showing the energy use for the current year and the preceding year.
