In the U.S., more money is spent powering K-12 buildings than on textbooks and computers combined. According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, most schools could be saving at least 25% of their energy costs.

Despite the financial benefits, K-12 buildings face a number of obstacles to becoming more energy efficient:

  • Administrators juggle numerous responsibilities and energy issues may be lower priority
  • Benefits from sustainability initiatives often accrue over time and may require upfront investments or third-party financing

The timing is ideal to take action:

  • Schools are under pressure to reduce expenses
  • Time-sensitive incentives are available
  • Energy and sustainability are hot topics that provide learning opportunities for students
