LED lights brighten classroom thanks to SMPA

installing-lights-in-classroomTri-State member co-op San Miguel Power Association (Nucla, Colo.) recently gave a $1,950 grant to the Positive Energy Committee at Ridgway Elementary School to buy LED lights for a classroom demonstration project to begin later this month. That committee is made up of eight fourth- and fifth-graders and their teacher.

For two months, students will compare electricity use in three classrooms: one with fluorescent tube lights, one with LED tube lights and the other powered by solar panels. Meters will measure the amount of electricity being used, the cost of power and carbon emissions. “Ultimately, we would like to be able to demonstrate good, better and best in terms of energy efficiency,” said Krista Javoronok, the committee’s teacher-adviser.
