In June, our own Steve Herzlieb traveled down to the US Virgin Islands to deliver some training at the University of the Virgin Islands.
[twocol_one]Here’s Steve doing hands on energy monitoring with the students. Connecting with the Virgin Islands Energy Office, Steve introduced students to energy audit techniques, home performance assessments and more.
Students even took the challenging Building Performance Institute (BPI) Building Science Principles exam online!

In this one, the class discovered a malfunctioning toilet, which was wasting water at a rate of approximately 2,160 gallons of water a day or 788,400 gallons per year.
