Making the Grade in Energy Efficiency

Creating positive community-based engagement opportunities for students, teachers, faculty, and staff.

Back to Case Studies

Tight budgets and aging facilities have left most school districts in the Tennessee Valley searching for ways to cut energy costs and find outside resources for needed infrastructure improvements. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) saw an opportunity to help schools realize energy and cost savings through a process known as Strategic Energy Management (SEM), and they called on Milepost to help create an initiative that would have an immediate and widespread impact.

Leaning on their expertise in developing people-centered engagement programs, Milepost supported TVA and its partners in creating School Uplift, a cohort-style training program that promotes energy savings through operational and behavioral changes. Participation in the program helps K-12 public schools save money so they can reallocate their limited resources where it matters most: educating children.
