Helping schools improve energy performance is good for co-ops too!
Co-ops can benefit in a number of ways by taking part in the Schools A+ Energy Efficiency Program.
Benefits for co-ops
- Community outreach is an important aspect of the Cooperative Difference and demonstrates two important principles: Education and Concern for Community.
- Hands-on, face-to-face interaction strengthens relationships with key members, in this case schools.
- Working with schools helps co-ops reach beyond the schools to individual members.
- Partnering with schools enhances the co-op image as energy experts and community leaders.
