The school that can't turn out the lights

A school in North America was designed as a showpiece of modern engineering, using a highly sophisticated energy management system. Just one problem: they forgot to install light switches. 

The three-year-old building in Massachusetts, USA, cost over $190 million to build, and this mistake is set to cost the city another $20,000.

The lighting at Newton North High School uses efficient lamps across the estate, all connected to an online control system allowing energy consumption to be monitored remotely. Those with access to the online system can control the lighting, but for the people walking the hallways, such ideas are still a long way off.

Newton North High was recently ranked as one of the best high schools in America by Newsweek
