Here you can see your school’s current number of Energy Kit requests and how much energy has been saved as a result, measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). Numbers are updated by Friday of each week.
Once you see your school’s numbers, use the calculator slide below to translate those saved kWh into real-world energy equivalencies.
