  • Oregon PUDs helping Oregon schools
    Consumer-owned utilities work with their local school districts to help them find energy savings, reduce their energy costs and put more money back in the classroom. Oregon’s People’s Utility Districts have been providing school districts with technical assistance, programs and services for more than 12 years. Cost-effective energy efficiency makes good business sense for the schools as well as the PUDs. To find out more about the PUDs’ efforts with their local schools – including project costs, efficiency captured and energy saved – please go here.
  • Milton-Freewater School District: Loan helps cool schools

    (From OPB and East Oregonian) When the air conditioning system at Ferndale Elementary School in Milton-Freewater gave out in Spring 2011, students spent the remaining school year and part of the next in sweltering classrooms. In a tough spot, the Milton-Freewater School Board turned to Cool Schools, a program championed by Gov. John Kitzhaber to provide school districts with low-interest loans to improve energy efficiency. To read more, please go here.
  • Klamath Falls City Schools: Some very Cool Schools
    In less than a year, Klamath Falls City Schools completed 48 energy efficiency improvements to all 11 of its district buildings, many of which were constructed before 1930. The district took out a SELP loan processed through Oregon’s new Cool Schools program. While most of the district’s facilities were too cold for a number of reasons, one elementary school – heated with geothermal energy – was actually too warm! District officials say the energy savings will cover the cost of the loan. The savings in energy will allow it to pay back the $400,000 loan within 10 years.
