KEYS PARTNERS WITH STUDENT FILMMAKERS TO PRODUCE CONSERVATION VIDEOS FOR PEAK USAGE TIMES
08/24/2015 ~ Keys Energy Services' (KEYS) recently partnered with students from Conch 5 Studios at Key West High School (KWHS) to produce a series of social media videos promoting energy conservation during peak usage times.
Summer peak usage times run from 4:00 to 7:00P during the months of May to September. Winter peak usage times run from 8:00 to 10:00A during the months of October to April. "Conserving energy during peak times can help reduce loads on the electric grid and in the long run defer construction of new generating facilities," said KEYS' General Manager & CEO Lynne Tejeda.
Students were tasked with producing videos that promoted conservation efforts during peak usage times as part of a video production class project underwritten by KEYS. The videos linked below are among 300 nationwide entries selected from over 250,000 submissions to be screened at the prestigious All-American High School Film Festival (AAHSFF) in New York City in October.
