As a school official, you probably know

the annual energy bill to run America’s primary and secondary schools is a staggering $6 billion.

This is more than is spent on

textbooks and computers combined.

What you may not know is:

The least efficient schools use three times more energy

than the best energy performers;

and

Top performing ENERGY STAR labeled schools cost forty cents per square foot less to operate than the average performers.

Think of the amount of funds saved

in an ENERGY STAR school

on energy bills

that can now be used for other necessary budget items (e.g. salaries, books, teaching tools, etc.)

EPA has partnered with organizations throughout America (including schools)

to implement practical, proven, cost-effective solutions

for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

with outstanding environmental and financial success.
