School Uplift Is Open For Enrollment!

NES is proud to support schools in the region through energy efficiency training and grants that reduce energy costs with School Uplift.

Each year, NES partners with TVA EnergyRight to help bring School Uplift to approximately 100 public schools at no cost to the schools. More than $3 million is invested annually to help provide active energy management training such as strategic energy management, as well as competitive need-based grants that allow for much-needed energy upgrades. 

Participating schools have seen a multitude of benefits, including a 10% annual energy cost reduction, average annual savings of $13,000, better ventilation, brighter classrooms, and new LED lighting, amongst other benefits.
