Schools across Lincolnshire county will turn off their lights tomorrow for an energy challenge.

Lincolnshire County Council is running the Switch Off Challenge through its Schools Collaboration on Resource Efficiency team, or Score.

Those taking part will turn off lights, computers, interactive white boards and all non-essential electrics for the day. The idea is to get pupils to think of ways to save energy.

Each school will take two meter readings during the challenge to compare to readings taken on a normal day. Prizes will be given to the three schools that make the biggest reductions.

Score project officer Emily Neville said: “The switch-off challenge is a great way to get teachers and pupils thinking about their energy use, and what simple changes they can make to reduce their consumption.”
