In September 2015, Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools moved to a team-cleaning model. The operational savings were substantial, and caught everyone by surprise. Also this month, Place des Arts, an established non-profit arts and music hub in Maillardville, Coquitlam, emerges as a city leader in energy conservation and management. And, if you commute or if your business operates a small fleet, it may be time to consider a switch to electric.
"Team cleaning has such potential, and not just for schools," says Emil Bock, energy manager at Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools. "Grocery stores, office buildings and hotels could benefit from team cleaning too. Any place where cleaning can happen faster, the lights can be off longer."
