مدرسه کاترین کوک:

قسمتي از متن فيلم: You hi I’m Bob ricardinho I’m the manager of the environmental services here at Catherine cook school in Chicago Illinois here’s one of my favorite pieces this is a hundred percent linseed oil board has compared to a cork board cork board over its fifteen years of life will give off formaldehyde gases

This does not it’s all natural what’s nice too is when you pull the nails or staples out it reveals itself so this will last it’s a little more expensive it’s called pho bo board it’s a little more expensive but it the kids aren’t breathing formaldehyde gas so we have

These throughout the school and we’re in the midst of six weeks left to school so i’ll cover with all kinds of projects so is the first i get seated is it fully covered but this is linseed oil base board all natural what we did for the it

Pays part of energy and saving on every level look at every level possible and we redesign the washrooms with the best hand dryers you can get they only use energy when you’re underneath them if you’re not underneath them it automatically cuts out so we’re saving energy there we have water reducing

Toilets urinals and multi you sink so both can use it and they have limited water supply so we’re conserving our water I have 72 faucets in the school and what we did to conserve water and save a lot of energy and gas is we went to hot water on demand system one

Specially built for our school to take care of getting hot water from seven o’clock in the morning till whenever we need it at night but during the weekend it shuts down and goes to sleep kind of like I do we’re going to go upstairs now and has we walked through the school I’d

Like to show you too is remember to school is not a school it was a shoe factory it was BMB insole shoe factory you can see a recycling band we have them strategic those the recycling bends are strategically placed because everybody goes oh we recycle the

Question is what do you recycle not oh yes we recycle no no what are you recycling so you want to look at what’s coming in your building as far as what’s going out so you’re going to see cans throughout the building strategic in place come on up or going up to the roof

Guys where it all happens when we started putting in the renewable energy components we put a fence here because we actually teach classes up here so the kids are actually seeing the renewable energy touching it so that they can get a grasp of it as where you know that

When you get wind turbine everybody goes when’s your payback that’s the key we’re not in it for payback our payback is going to be 20 years from now because we’re preschool through eighth grade when they are actually designing this stuff and using this stuff let’s go over to the solar panel array

This was this is a one kilowatt solar display and this is all we have in solar panel right now reason being is those two buildings over there are going to be torn down this summer and we’re in large in our school to be an l-shaped school because we own those two buildings buildings

Cross streets or enlarging the school so once we enlarge the school and we replace all the feel the HVAC we’re going to be able to see how much more space I have and how many more solar panels I can put up the solar panels were from the state of Illinois on a

Grant that I wrote to get that it was very generous this is a one kilowatt solar panel and when we get downstairs I’ll show you what we use it for it’s actually used every day and night in the school use and can you just start by telling me a little bit about the

History of why you decided to install a wind turbine and solar system how you got funding for it and hey guys we got a grant for the solar panels and the state gave us ten thousand and we put in approximately about twelve hundred dollars and the space for it

Scene and seen how it worked it was much easier to go for another grant to get my wind turbine when getting the wind turbine we had we’re thinking about small and then we thought let’s go with the big one that’s a four kilowatt which is pretty nice size it would probably

Power about two rooms one for sure if not two rooms but again we’re not interested in the payback of it we’re interested in the teaching of renewable energy to the children because their minds at you know preschool through eighth grade are so open and we really

Have a good time teaching the class he’s gonna be a little bit about how you had to work with the city as far as zoning yes systems yes anything you do within the building envelope you have to have permits we have permanent for the wind turbine and the solar panels and it’s

Such a permit that adding on to it now I would not have to get another permit because they know what we’re doing and if you win our well-designed wind turbine right before that was a water tower took that bound is almost approximately the same height so we

Replaced some useful with a tower the water tank which is was wood shows how all the building is was taken down long before we were around but we don’t need since we have a fire suppression system we don’t need the gravity water tower you mentioned the classes that you bring

It to middle school can you talk about how yes what it’s we go from presa we have preschool up here to preschool the chart and it’s a it’s available everyone on computer for these solar panels how much we’re taking in how much power we’re taking in well a preschooler is of

Age 33 for they don’t comprehend calculations or kilowatts what the program shows them is how many trees we have acted for or how many cars we’ve taken off the street with their pollution and so they can go and there it goes let’s go see you brought us luck

It’s finally turning I felt my hair is moving it’s gotta be moving something so what we do for preschool then go home and they do they go home because their parents stop me and say Bob what do you mean you’re taking three cars off the streets the amount of energy we created

Without using fossil fuels is three cars today of what we collected of Sun or we powered 13 homes by what we collected today that’s for preschool as we get up through the grades and finally get the middle school 8th grade but they know the kilowatts and they incorporate it

Into their math class and what it’s doing how much it’s doing and there we have opened up our energy bills Commonwealth edits and bills to them and say well look at how much it says we’re using and they’ve been able to draw they have been able to draw the line of

Decreasing dependency power it’s not a huge amount but it’s somewhere to start we’re taking that first step and that’s what really kicks it off so the eighth grade no no mechanical numbers of it the preschool know that it’s eliminating the fumes from automobile okay we’re in the

Third floor which is the middle school floor and right now this is showing the use of the wind turbine this is how we monitor the wind turbine and as you can see in the 12 month period is good right now it just started turning as we were up there

So it really hasn’t registered anything it would do like a bar graph this is what can be checked anytime here by middle school which is 7th and 8th grade also back here there are a couple plugs they can recharge their computers because we’re a one on one laptop

Program by these or any other battery powered instrument they’re using so they’re the use of their computers is being recharged by renewable energy we’re going to go downstairs and look at the second floor one now since I told you we have a one-to-one laptop computer program

There’s no class in here right now but with the amount of light given off by the laptops do you really need every light in the school on these are teachers who now work with that same feeling that you know let’s not have it bright on bright just you know what the

Children need to see and now put them in dark but to watch so this would be like a typical classroom this is a third-grade class okay here we are on our second floor renewable energy center again this is a computer that monitors the so the wind turbine and shows so

Once the wind turbine gets pissed gets kicked up you’ll be able to see a bar graph to it these are directly wired into the wind turbine and solar panel ones win one solar what we do here is recharged rechargeable batteries so anything clocks radios anything we need

Recharged our radios we use their on we recharge them on here and at night we get a tray of laptop computers plug them in here and recharge them and these are only designated from the wind turbine and the solar panels so renewable renewable and we’re noble again and the

As you see the children have been here today right they write down if they take a battery or if a teacher takes a battery it’s the honor system and again to me it shows that the children are really into this because they’re returning the battery they’ll stop me

Also Bob I put some batteries in the recharge oh okay Joe great so did you take what you needed though evolved newer batteries they know to keep reusing them bill marish director of information technology for us we see any kind of green initiative especially with technology for this

Overall as a partnership that has to be enduring and sustainable technology winds up it winds up consuming an awful lot of resources we do have to have some kind of an eye on what happens at the end of life but also on beginning of life where the devices come from what

Happens while we’re using them in the school so we we try to make sure that our purchase is try to you know we try to make sure that the partners that we have in purchasing have something some sort of a green ethos going into the process on the infrastructure side we’ve

Moved away from having large quantity of physical servers virtualization is a buzzword that everybody likes to use for us the virtualization has really reduced our footprint dramatically we’ve gone from having about 14 physical servers running and the need to cool and power all of those is huge so we’ve really

Reduced that footprint down now we have two physical boxes that we run and that you know obviously is you know taking 12 servers offline and brought us down to two huge power decrease but more importantly it means we don’t have to cool the space nearly as much so there’s

You know another energy savings there plus cooling is probably going to be more polluting for us even then the power that we’re just consumed to keep the devices running so you know on those ends it’s also you know sharing the educational mission but the school has

So with all of the many devices we have we have to have a lot of batteries sometimes four remotes or you know kind of a device like a camera or a video camera that goes out in the field when we moved away from having disposable batteries and into a

Rechargeable program otherwise you know we’re just throwing stuff into a landfill and we’re spending money upon money where you know realistically we already have the means here to recharge those batteries and you know with with a lot of the efforts already being made with facilities you know a lot of the

Energy options we have going into that are green choices with having wind and solar power available so with that we try to teach the students sort of a direct one-to-one relationship if we’re recharging something what power does it take to do that charge and then on the

Flip side what are we actually producing you know ourselves more sustainably more you know efficiently and with less pollution so we do keep a data feed running on our actual web page just so people have some sense more broadly if you want to look from the outside

Anybody can come in and get just a little bit of a sense of what’s happening this is this the solar array itself obviously it’s a little bit cloudy or day so we’re not producing as much but you know this is kind of a trajectory last 24 hours if we take a

Look at its overall lifespan I think the nice thing about this is when you’re teaching students you have the opportunity to show them something about cycles of whether even and those things are really taking a look at the bigger picture and what kind of global impact

We have down here at the bottom it also gives us a sense of the actual benefit to the environment I mean so what have we done the preschoolers and measure to a small child through your relate to what that thing is doing so you know we’ve had this up let’s just

Say in the last 12 months you know realistically that’s pretty much you know about the lifespan of the entire thing in the villain been up a little more than a year but in that time in our carbon offsets equivalent to that of 27 trees so you know that’s something

Tangible for for a student but it’s also you know the ability to says power the following for a day 49 houses so that’s tangible that’s real that’s that’s something that we haven’t had to consume from a coal burning plant or whatever it may be and then back over on our wind turbine

Little bit different sort of yeah but over here you can take a look over the last year and get a sense of how much we’ve produced this also gives us a little bit of our you know co2 you know what kind of pollution footprint we’ve taken away so the energy to power a

Computer basically for a year but you know this is also not the most accurate data right now we had to kick that offline for a period of time so but you know in the time that we’ve been tracking the newer data is you know you

Know I like the other one over here they think also realistically students might be a little bit more interested in what that means for television so 725 hours worth of TV off of a wind turbine I think I would take that if I were if I were it’s greater
