Medford, Ore. — The Medford School District has been working to be more energy conscious, and tonight, we’re getting a look at just how much they’re saving.
One big project was replacing the fluorescent bulbs at Central High School with LED’s. The savings in that project, coupled with other energy-saving methods has saved the district $200,000 in 2 years.
“We want everyone involved in this because not only is it good for the environment and good for our budget, but it will put money back in the classroom for kids,” MSD Communications Specialist, Natalie Hurd says, “and we’re really excited to see the fruits of our labor paying off in this way.”
They’re also encouraging energy-saving techniques in classrooms like unplugging all electronics in the summer, and when they’re not in use.
