Vallejo Times-Herald: Federal agency acknowledges Vallejo schools’ energy savings

By Lanz Christian BaƱes Times-Herald staff writer/

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has named the Vallejo City Unified School District a leader in energy-efficient buildings — an effort that has saved the district $2 million in utility bills.

“This is without any capital improvement,” assistant Superintendent Mel Jordan said Friday at Pennycook Elementary School in East Vallejo.

Nearly all of the district’s 29 sites have achieved an energy star certification, meaning they have used 35 percent less energy and emitted 35 percent less greenhouse gas since 2009, when the district’s energy conservation program began with national conservation company Energy Education Inc.
