Green Bay School District reports big savings due to energy efficiency

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Officials with the Green Bay School District say they have saved about $10 million over the last 10 years by using energy-efficient light bulbs, turning off or dimming lights, keeping their heating and cooling systems in good condition and avoiding the use of energy during peak times.

Other Wisconsin school districts are said to be using Green Bay’s approach as a model. The system reportedly spends about 60 cents per square foot on energy in its high school buildings.

Many districts spend more than $1 per square foot.
