Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) recently announced Bledsoe County Middle School, was awarded a $100,000 Learning Environment grant through Tennessee Valley Authority’s School Uplift program.
Tight budgets and aging buildings leave many schools facing a difficult decision between funding learning programs and making needed facility upgrades. TVA’s $7.3 million School Uplift program is helping 160 public schools in seven states solve that problem.
School Uplift is a 12-month behavior-based energy management training program developed with the State of Tennessee’s Energy Efficient Schools Initiative that helps public school districts make smart energy choices to improve the classroom learning environment and save money through decreased energy use.
