    • Implementation of an electrical infrastructure and conversion plan to convert our diesel and gasoline school buses to 100% electric zero emission school buses including future vehicle-to-grid technology

    • Geothermal heating and cooling system at Craughwell Elementary School

    • Solar panel system installed on 6 of our 7 schools that so far has produced over 2.5 million kWh of electricity in 3 years 

    • District-wide LED lighting at all of our facilities

    • Building automation upgrades to our facilities to save energy on HVAC and lighting

    • Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization systems installed in all of our schools to increase indoor air quality during the Covid-19 pandemic
