Oklahoma Green Schools Program Energy Support
Energy Assessments for Green Schools Across Oklahoma
To support the Oklahoma Green Schools Program, Brendle Group conducted energy assessments for schools across the state. During an extremely tight project timeline of just two months, Brendle Group quickly mobilized and completed over 20 assessments of school buildings ranging from elementary schools to multi-building high school campuses.
The schools' Green Teams – students, teachers and staff – were engaged throughout the assessment process, shadowing Brendle Group engineers during assessments and participating in a follow-up report review to discuss the assessment outcomes and possible next steps. Additionally, Brendle Group developed a plan to address preventative maintenance issues at the schools based on nationally recognized guidelines for effective incorporation of energy efficiency considerations. More than just simple energy assessments, this project blended the learning potential of school energy efficiency efforts with professional building system analysis.
