Have you integrated renewable energy plans?

Absolutely! We are dedicated to taking full advantage of the viable sources of renewable energy on our property. Currently, the best and most cost effective source is solar energy.

But first, it is important to begin with a highly efficient building design that minimizes the need to turn on lights, cooling or heating any more than necessary. Current energy modeling estimates the new K-8 and Gym/Community Hall buildings at approximately 62% savings over the national average for school buildings, or a 38% reduction in energy usage over the baseline design required by national energy standards.

This combination of renewable energy and energy efficiency will help us meet our LEED Gold certification goal and our target for the Carbon Neutral 2030 Challenge.
