  • 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.
