The earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs but not every man’s greed -Gandhiji
We depend on energy for almost everything in our lives as we wish to make our lives comfortable, productive and enjoyable. A combination of both energy conservation and energy efficiency measures yields an ideal solution.
Delhi Public School, GBN, Noida has proudly joined the Energy Saving Campaign which has been initiated by the Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA). The campaign’s aim is to motivate schools to adopt energy efficient equipment & practices, as well as to inculcate healthy energy usage behaviour which is sustainable.
The school formed an Energy Conservation Club with fifteen students three years ago and the students are actively involved in energy saving campaign. The Club members along with the teachers have made the students and parents take a pledge to save energy for future generations. The school’s electrical panels have been checked to ensure that no electricity is being wasted on account of poor wiring and insulation. The school’s solar panels generate energy for daily consumption and this energy is sent for use to the UP government’s power grid when the school is closed. An energy survey was also done by the students of the club. Students presented their views on energy conservation in a creative manner by making posters, writing slogans, poems and essays. We hope that all these efforts will help fulfil the purpose of this mega campaign. School has been implementing all the measures in every day life to conserve energy by creating awareness and making students more responsible and sensitive.
