This facility was able to achieve superior energy performance by adhering to the Energy Guidelines established for the school system. The school staff ensures that the lighting is turned off when not needed and reduced where possible, and that all non-essential electronic equipment is turned off at the end of each day. The HVAC system is controlled and monitored through a centralized control system. All mechanical equipment is maintained through a preventive maintenance program, which improves energy efficiency. A diligent custodial staff conducts daily shutdown inspections to ensure that energy waste is avoided. Utility bills are tracked and monitored to make sure the school operates as efficient as possible.




?In keeping with the vision of the Winston-Salem Forsyth County School District, we focus on the elimination of energy and utility waste to achieve energy savings while enhancing the quality of the educational environment. Congratulations to all the students and staff at North Hills Elementary School.?
