Pencil Sharpeners

One way to cut down an energy bill for schools is to take away all the electric pencil sharpeners and just install normal, old-fashioned hand-powered sharpeners in the classrooms. Sure, it takes more effort to move your hand in a circle, and sure, it isnt as fun as operating an electric sharpener, but if you installed enough sharpeners around the school, you could notice a small decrease in the energy bill. Not a huge increase, but every little bit matters.
