High school makes the grade

Janice White, superintendent for the Saratoga City Springs Central School District, said that energy efficiency is a districtwide effort.

"For the past several years, we have been doing a number of capital projects focused on energy-efficient solutions," said White.

She noted that the district has reduced costs for energy and what they're looking for as officials focus on the educational component with students and professionals in the buildings.

"They're engaged currently with doing some educational work and activities around recycling and clubs that individual students are involved in that focus on being leaders in their buildings," said White.

Buildings that earn the Energy Star use an average of 40 percent less energy than typical buildings, and also release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
