Did you know that utilities are the second-highest cost for the district behind salaries and that 39% of all energy is used in buildings nationwide? We are excited to announce the AISD Energy Champion Newsletter, which will be published a few times each year to promote engagement activities, announce contests, and share conservation tips and resources.
In this issue, we spotlight our first Energy Champion: Rhonda Barton from Eastside and International High School. The newsletter also discusses solar at AISD, a grant opportunity for energy education, free online energy lessons and a digital field trip live from the Paramount Theater.
We hope that you’re inspired to become an energy champion. Remember: it takes everyone to make a difference and the Energy Leadership team is here to help.
