As you enter Springvale Elementary, you'll see the Energy Dashboard hung on the wall on your left. It's a great place to check the pulse of the school! How much electricity is being used at this school? Sometimes that looks like the same amount of energy as it takes to cook 200 pizzas! At Springvale, the Energy Dashboard has an awesome playful frame around it, which makes it look great!
