Energy Efficiency and Renewables
What if ...
- every school, district and education department in the US became sustainable resource users?
- all our schools produced their own power — were lit, heated and cooled by wind and solar energy?
- schools were built with sustainable materials, were designed to be ultra resource efficient and provided healthy spaces for children to learn and teachers to teach?
While we can and must achieve this glowing vision over time, it is not today’s reality. Most US schools are not only taking a negative toll on the environment, but they’re also spending way too much money on energy—funds that could be used to pay teachers and buy books.
Take a step in the right direction -- read on to learn about accessible ways your school can save energy.
