General information

The Alliance to Save Energy’s Green Schools Program empowers students to make a difference in the way their schools use energy. Energy costs are an enormous expense for our nation’s schools, approximately $6 billion each year, and much of the energy that is consumed is wasted. And in many schools, energy costs are second only to personnel costs, exceeding the cost of textbooks and supplies. Green Schools students are educated about energy and the importance of energy efficiency and trained to use a diagnostic toolkit that assesses the energy usage in their school. The school building becomes a learning lab for students to apply science math, and even language arts, to solve a global problem. Through basic changes in operations, maintenance, and individual behavior, schools participating in the Green Schools Program have achieved reductions in energy use of 5 to 15 percent. In addition, the Green Schools Program encourages and equips students to promote the lessons of energy-efficiency in their homes and communities. The Green Schools Program started in 1996 and is currently active in California, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, and Washington, DC. Funding for the programs comes from utility companies, municipalities, and school systems.
