Tucson Electric Power (TEP) began recognizing customers with BrightEE awards (now known as TEP Go Green Awards) five years ago to promote awareness of its energy efficiency programs, which help customers save energy while producing substantial environmental benefits. Join me to learn about an over-the-top accomplishment on the part of one of Tucson’s local school districts. When you hear about what they were able to do, it will come as no surprise as to why they were awarded the Public School District award. One of the most fun aspects we will hear about is a competition they put on having three of their schools compete in a pilot program, to see which one could save more energy over a 90-day period. Game on! This show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Electric Power.
