    Sensible Steps for Energy Efficiency in Schools with ENERGY STAR!

    Rising energy costs are a major concern for school districts across the nation. U.S. schools spend a combined $8 billion on energy every year. That’s more than expenditures for computers and textbooks combined!  Join this EPA webinar to learn how the ENERGY STAR program can help you improve energy efficiency and reduce operating costs in your schools.


    •   Learn guidelines for energy management that your school can follow to improve energy and financial performance;

    •   See how to evaluate your school’s energy performance with EPA’s new and improved ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager;

    •   Discover sensible steps Des Moines Public Schools (DMPS) took to enhance energy efficiency, reduce energy waste, and avoid $2.4 million in energy costs compared to a 2008 baseline.
