In 600-900 words total, provide your responses to sections A, B, and C. Include a screenshot of the online PG&E graph showing your electricity and natural
gas daily usage over the entire period (baseline and conservation)! This part of the project is due on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 10:00 A.M. PowerPoint
presentations will also be due on November 30, 2021 at 10:00 A.M. Online “live” presentations will be held on November 30, 2021 at regular class time.
A) Analyze your and the class’ data during the conservation period, using the following criteria. All averages are given in the Green Ninja Energy Tracker
● What was your average electricity and natural gas energy use for the baseline period compared to the conservation period? Explain the changes observed
(how much electricity, natural gas, and CO2 emissions were saved), and why you did or did not achieve your designed goal.
● Summarize the classroom energy use, comparing baseline with conservation period data. How large of a reduction in electricity and natural gas usage was
there for our class? What about CO2 emissions?
● How does your energy use compare with the average in Santa Clara County? The average home in Santa Clara County uses 540 kWh of electricity per
month, or 18 kWh per day. The average home uses 45 therms of natural gas per month, (60 therms in winter and 24 therms in summer) or 1.5 Therms per
day. Is your home above or below the average, and why do you think this might be?
B) Revision of Energy Conservation Design. Based on your data analysis and what you have learned, how would you revise your design in the future to
produce further energy and carbon savings? Justify your suggested changes.
C) Reflection. Explain what you learned from participating in the project. How easy or hard was it to make the changes for yourself and your household? Do
you think some of the changes you made could become permanent? Do you think it would be easy or challenging for others to make similar changes? How
could the city of San José (or the city that you live in) encourage energy conservation in households?
PRESENTATION (5 min. per student; ~5 min. max.)
**NO PARAGRAPHS. JUST BULLET POINTS (SUMMARIZE THE INFO)
Explain the project and what was the goal of it.
List what kind of changes you did to your designs, what tool was used to measure the data, and what tool was used to analyze the data.
Explain your main results.
What did you learn?
What was unexpected?
Make sure that you include numbers such as the percentage of change in Electricity Consumption and CO2 Emission (lbs.). You can find this percentages in
the Green Ninja website or you can calculate them.
D) Recommendations for the Community
Think of yourself as an advisor for your community. What changes would you recommend to your neighbors, family, and friends to help them reduce their
energy consumption? What changes would you make in your community to help everyone reduce their energy consumption
