Deadline: Green Cup Energy Challenge

Students, teachers and custodial staff from 103 DOE schools in New York City worked together last spring to collectively conserve 687,110 kWh of electricity and prevent over 1 million pounds of global warming carbon dioxide (CO2) from being released into the atmosphere in just four weeks. This year’s NYC DOE Green Cup Challenge will be held from Nov. 5 through Dec. 3. Schools should register between now and October 26. This year’s award pool is $100,000 with schools getting funds based on the kWh saved. Schools that achieve the greatest percent reduction will receive additional funds.
