Energy Conservation Program
District Employees Are Saving Money...
Over $7 million!
The Marana Unified School District embraces energy conservation and believes it is their responsibility to ensure that every reasonable effort is made to conserve energy and natural resources while exercising sound financial management.
With the cost of utilities being the second-largest budget line-item for the District, and the prices for electricity, natural gas, and water steadily increasing, District Administration and Governing Board members took a proactive step in good stewardship of budgeted funds and energy by embarking on a comprehensive behavior-based energy conservation and management program in fall 2013. This is not a short-term “green project.” It’s a comprehensive, rigorous and sustainable energy program to help the District save money for years to come.
Since beginning this serious energy conservation program, the District has saved over $7,000,000 from expected energy costs, and the environmental impact is equal to taking 4,162 cars off the street or planting 512,295 trees in our community! Through this program, the District is creating a culture of energy conservation that is saving teaching positions, student programs, and the environment.
