  14. Monitoring • With her architectural drawings of the school we were able to monitor how much electricity we used. • To get us started, a local Eco-Architect helped us audit the school‘s electricity use.

  15. Monitoring • We placed a record sheet like this in every single room in the school every week for a month.

  16. Electricity monitoring We checked whether lights and other electrical things were on or off We recorded the results

  17. Electricity Monitoring • The results were put into an Excel document for each floor of the school.

  18. Our Environmental Review • From this we were able to calculate how much electricity we use in the school each week. • The calculations were carried out using Microsoft Excel • The results were recorded on the school plan
