Moving ahead with Energy and EChO’s (across EREA)
Sustainability at EREA

In our efforts to continue to find ways to support our schools, EREA has recently developed initiatives to deepen insights into ecological consciousness and sustainable practices.

EREA has engaged energy services provider VERDIA to oversee an Energy Efficiency Program across our schools, beginning with a tailored feasibility assessment of solar power and LED lighting.

We are also excited about the insights we serve to gain from the EChO Across EREA Initiating Pilot, where three distinct learning communities from across EREA will have the opportunity to come together and engage in a learning journey designed to deepen an appreciation for an ecological consciousness. We hope that this pilot becomes the catalyst for network wide learning about caring for our common home.

EREA Energy Efficiency Program

As a way of providing support for schools to continue their efforts in caring for our common home, EREA has engaged with energy services provider, VERDIA to work with schools to find ways to become more sustainable and reduce electricity costs.

The Program is an attempt by EREA to respond to the essence of EREA’s Principals’ Statement on Ecological Sustainability: Solidarity through Care for our Common Home. 

The program includes a tailored feasibility assessment of the costs and benefits of using onsite solar power and more efficient LED lighting at each school, along with the support for project design, procurement, delivery and financing.

The first phase of this project is to conduct a feasibility assessment that can then be used to ascertain the viability of engaging in the development and delivery of the solar and lighting initiatives identified in the assessment.

VERDIA will be working with the EREA Executive to provide any information required by schools to assist with decision making and enquiries.
