Did you know?
TRUE or FALSE:
More money is spent in schools each year for energy than for both textbooks and computers combined.
Scroll down for the answer...
Lighting accounts for the majority of a school's energy costs followed closely by heating and cooling. What is spent on energy is greater than what is spent on books and computers combined so the answer is TRUE. Because energy use is controllable, when we conserve energy in the school district we are saving money and then are keeping these monies in the district for other student necessities. Thaks for doing your part!
