CHS Wins SERT Energy Award

By Fiona Asbury, Editor-In-Chief

Congratulations to CHS for winning a SERT Third Quarter Energy Performance Award for its consumption last year. SERT is an MCPS program, which stands for School Energy and Recycling Team and promotes efficient and responsible energy use in schools.

According to School Business Administrator Lisa Welleck, CHS has an electricity bill of $328,390.34 last year and a natural gas bill of $87,130.66. The SERT award was received because both bills were less than those of the previous year.

“I think it is fantastic that we are winning awards and that the students are conscious of their conservation efforts,” Welleck said. “It’s paying off.”
