PAGE 4 | AUGUST 2012 Letters challenge Yarbrough principal By Erin Moore, Member Relations Specialist


were selected to attend Youth Power Energy Camp. All three winners were from Yarbrough Public Schools, with a total of seven entries received from the school. Principal Clifford Benson certainly has some good suggestions for helping his school become more energy effi cient. Francis Diendo of Elkhart suggested getting his entire school to become involved in the energy savings idea. “Form an energy club…give a presentation about energy in our school and teach younger students to conserve energy,” suggested Diendo in his letter. Sydni Wiggin of rural Goodwell likes the idea of automation for her school. Her suggestions included automatic light switches to turn lights off when motion is not detected within a room. An automatic low-fl ow fl ushing toilet was another of Sydni’s ideas to help save water and the energy used to pump the water. But she realizes there is cost involved. “Installing automatic fi xtures require an expense in the beginning, but will pay for themselves over time,” Sydni said. Tyler Evans of rural Keyes can see real dollars when making his suggestions to Mr. Benson. Tyler recommended the use of compact fl orescent light bulbs (CFLs) as a cost savings measure. “Each CFL bulb used around the school could save us around $6 a year,” Tyler said. Tyler, like Francis, also suggested a club at the school to help reduce energy that would meet and discuss ways to help the school reduce its energy bill. He would call his club Energy Savers.

TYLER EVANS, LEFT, AND FRANCIS DIENDO ATTENDED THE 2012 ENERGY CAMP NEAR HINTON, OKLA. SYDNI WIGGIN DIDN’T ATTEND.


Tyler, Sydni and Francis were selected to attend the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperative’s Energy Camp. Certainly, Principal Benson has some bright students in his midst, but it seems he will have a challenge ahead of him for continuing to make his school more energy effi cient. The school is well on its way after having installed a 50kv wind turbine at the school. The turbine is not only effective in reducing their energy consumption by using wind power, but it is a valuable resource to the school to demonstrate responsibility with energy consumption. Application packets for Energy Camp are sent to junior high schools in the spring. For more information, visit the cooperative’s website at www.tri-countyelectric.coop.
