节能专家被任命为“能源先锋”

His waterwise approach to maintaining the turf on Canyons School District fields has conserved millions of gallons of water. His push to place mechanical systems in “unoccupied mode” when school buildings are vacant, along with heating, cooling and lighting upgrades, has helped reduce the District’s carbon footprint by 45 percent–even with the addition of 1 million square feet of new construction.

For these, and other, trailblazing efforts to champion the environment, CSD Energy Specialist Chris Eppler was named an Energy Pioneer at the Governor’s 2017 Utah Energy Development Summit on May 4. Organized to brainstorm a sustainable energy future for Utah, the two-day summit drew more than 1,000 attendees.

“These are exciting times for the energy industry – times characterized by rapid changes in how we produce, deliver and use energy,” the governor said in a press statement, expressing appreciation for the movers behind innovations such as, underground geothermal laboratories, wirelessly charging electric vehicles, utility-scale compressed air storage, carbon capture and sequestration, and the production of carbon fiber from coal.

‘Healthy Schools’ Steps at Canyons

能源: Canyons的能源专家Christopher Eppler说,自2009年该区成立以来,即使我们的设施增加了100万平方英尺,我们的碳足迹也减少了39%,即减少了6,923公吨的二氧化碳。这相当于减少了10,311辆汽车的行驶里程。这可以通过升级较旧学校的供暖,制冷和照明系统,以及在建筑物空置时将机械系统置于“空置”模式来实现。

水: 峡谷也在尽力减少用水量;该地区有大约370英亩的草皮要维护。得益于犹他州中部水利保护区的$15,000赠款,埃普勒(Eppler)雇用并培训了Canyons学生,以根据根部区域,草的类型,阴影,土壤类型和蒸发速率帮助调查,监测和调整学校的用水时间表。 2014年7月,该地区的使用量比2012年7月减少了1650万加仑,比2013年7月减少了950万加仑。 

DON气测试: 峡谷区最近因其ra气测试计划而被犹他州环境质量局授予荣誉。 CSD是犹他州唯一的定期对学校进行ra测试的地区,所有建筑物至少每两年进行一次测试。

CLEAN AIR: 在世界地球日,峡谷成为犹他州第一个在其所有学校免费闲置的学区。这项运动于凌晨在里奇克莱斯特小学开始,那里安装了“无怠速”标志,学生们向他们招呼招贴,信息手册和窗户固定装置,以贴在车上。最终,所有峡谷学校都将张贴标语,并向学生们寄送“不闲置”的誓言,鼓励父母自愿保证“钥匙转悠,自由自在”。
