KEEPS Enrollment is now Open
The KEEPS program helps Kentucky school districts reduce energy consumption and lower operating expenses. KEEPS is funded by the Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence and administered by KPPC - the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center.
KEEPS is expanding to serve all Kentucky school districts
Following the success of the KEEPS pilot program and with the burden of increasing energy costs on school budgets, Kentucky House Bill 2 Section 16 was signed into law on April 24, 2008 requiring all public school districts to enroll in the KEEPS program by Jan. 1, 2010. Boards of education are also required to report data on energy usage, costs and savings measures to KPPC through the KEEPS program.
KEEPS enrollment process opened Nov. 1, 2008
KPPC opened the KEEPS enrollment process to all Kentucky public school districts on Nov. 1, 2008. The enrollment form can be completed online or downloaded and returned to KEEPS by mail. Once enrolled, school districts will receive a confirmation letter with specific information on data reporting and a certificate of enrollment as a KEEPS member.
Additional tools and resources to help school districts create an effective energy management program are currently available through KEEPS.
