Energy Dashboard
The BVSD Energy Dashboard offers real time energy data for every school. Energy dashboards — tools that show how much real-time power a building is using and how to use less — are becoming more common. And now, nearly all BVSD buildings are getting an interactive dashboard of their own. Contact the Energy Team for a demonstration of how you can integrate the dashboard into your classroom, for use with your green/environmental teams and more. [more]
