Kentucky Energy Efficiency Program for Schools

The Kentucky Energy Efficiency Program for Schools (KEEPS) helps Kentucky school districts reduce energy consumption and lower operating expenses.  The Department for Energy Development and Independence has provided more than $4.7 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for funding to provide support for the 174 school districts by expanding the existing KEEPS program managed by the University of Louisville's Kentucky Pollution and Prevention Center (KPPC).  A system of regional coordinators, technicians and engineers guide districts through the process of implementing energy efficiency programs.
