NEOK chapter members recently spent the day at the EduRec Community Center evaluating their facility's options to improve energy efficiency as part of our Fourth Annual Community Sustainability Project. EduRec is an important piece of the north Tulsa community, where they provide after school programs, summer camps, monthly Food on the Move events, and many other family friendly activities.
We are helping them figure out how to program their thermostats, what utility incentives might be available for them, and identifying quick opportunities like sealing gaps around the doors and long term opportunities to update their HVAC system during their upcoming capital campaign. Thank you to everyone who volunteered and contributed to this project!
This is our fourth annual project and we plan to continue next year. If you have an idea of a sustainable nonprofit project that we could support, or if you would like to get involved in other chapter sustainability programs, please email Stepfanie Shaulis at email@example.com.
