Save Electricity and Reduce Carbon Footprints in Schools

Looking for saving energy costs? It is one of the simplest ways for schools to, collectively, save millions of Australian Dollars a year.  Saving Electricity in a school is a responsibility of each and everyone at the school, it not just about saving on money but an act of conserving the environment by reducing carbon footprints
