What is a Net Zero School?

Having a Net Zero Energy school means Picture1that each year our school makes as much energy as we use.  Our school has 1,997 solar panels that make electric energy from sunlight.  Our school uses electric energy, or electricity, to power lights, computers, the heating and air conditioning, and anything else that gets plugged in.

It is important that we always work not to waste energy.  We keep track of how much energy we make and how much energy we use for a full year.  At the end of our Net Zero Energy year, if we have made at least as much energy as we used, our school will be a Net Zero Building!

“We have a goal!  We will track our goal and achieve our goal!”
