Occupancy Sensor Donation and Installation with Legrand

In partnership with Legrand, North and Central America's Better Communities employee volunteer program, Waters Elementary has been working with Legrand employee volunteers to determine possible improvements for the 100 year old building. With the help of the school's building engineer, they determined certain Legrand Electrical Wiring and Building Control products that would be key donations to improve energy efficiency, safety and accessibility for students and faculty. As part of Legrand's Better Schools focus and alignment with the Center for Green School's mission, volunteers will be working with students, faculty and staff on the implementation of this project which will have multiple phases throughout the school year. The first GADOS opportunity will include implementation of Occupancy Sensors in various rooms.
