Saving Energy

Five of our schools have earned an EPA Energy Star award for excellence in energy efficiency! We track energy use in our schools through the US EPA "Portfolio Manager" database, along with 51,000 other US schools. Schools that lead with the highest energy efficiency scores (which are adjusted for weather and geography) qualify for the Energy Star award. ABRHS, Conant, Douglas, Merriam and McCarthy-Towne recently received this honor—we'll be posting plaques near the front door of each school. We're hoping that every school in the district will qualify for this award—and we're getting mighty close!

Power Down Project

The AB Power Down Project promotes energy conservation, mainly by promoting positive changes in behavior. Students have posted artwork, flyers and signs as Power Down reminders. See our Power Down Guidelines below or print the poster.
