Schools Roundup: Pacific Gas & Electric, Cenergistic, EnergyCAP, Ameresco Quantum

Napa Valley Unified School District in California has saved about $280,000 in electricity costs, about 1.8 million kWh, and avoided 460 tons GHG emissions every year for the past two years after implementing a series of energy-efficiency retrofits at several campuses, Napa Valley Register reports. Working with Pacific Gas & Electric and Napa County Energy Watch, the district installed energy-conserving equipment often with zero out-of-pocket expenditure. The $200,000 project, which had a payback of less than a year, included efficient classroom lighting, district-wide computer energy management systems and new pumps for five district swimming pools. The pool pump retrofit alone is expected to save $66,000 annually, while the smart power strips for 2,600 personal computer saves $5,000 per month.
