On Dec. 10, Mrs. Ferrell's eighth-grade science students worked alongside an engineering team from Practical Energy Solutions (PES) to conduct a school-wide energy audit. Independence was recently selected to participate in the fifth year of the Delaware Pathways to Green Schools Program, and the energy assessment served as one of the first steps in the year-long project. The audit helps to involve Indy's students on every level of our efforts to become more energy and environmentally responsible and efficient.
The Pathways program, created by the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility and Green Building United, provides grants, one-on-one support and expert resources to K-12 schools in Delaware that are committed to reducing energy use and fostering the growth of sustainability initiatives.
