We’re excited to announce that Toronto and Region Conservation will be publishing the Top Energy Performing Boards report at the end of June, as part of the Sustainable Schools program. For this project we analyzed data posted by 45 school boards (which represent almost three-quarters of all schools in Ontario) as a requirement of Ontario’s Green Energy Act. Every school has been assessed, adjusting for weather and school-specific variables, to establish its energy savings potential relative to good performance standards from the Sustainable Schools national database. The savings potential for all individual schools has been rolled up to arrive at our ranking of the top ten boards.

Over the next two weeks, TRCA will announce the Top Ten Energy Performing Boards in Ontario, a result of analysis of publicly available school board energy use data for the 2012-2013 school year. We invite you to follow the Sustainable Schools website, Twitter account (@SusSchoolCan) and the #TopONSchBdsEnergy hashtag as the top ten boards are revealed, one by one, starting on June 1st.
