Is Sustainability the Answer to the Academic & Financial Success of New Jersey Schools?

Decreased funding from the State and Federal Government, coupled with unwillingness on the part of voters to pay higher taxes, has caused many School Boards in New Jersey to look at Sustainability, as it relates to the greening of schools, as a means to keep their districts viable for the foreseeable future. A diverse panel experienced in greening new and existing school facilities and curriculum will address this question from their unique perspectives.

This panel discussion will be a precursor to a three year grant recently awarded to the Education Information and Resource Center (EIRC) by the Alliance for Competitive Energy Services (A.C.E.S.) to research the process of greening existing school facilities to determine if it results in lowering operating costs, and improving student achievement.

Leveraging Solar Revenues
Limited Capacity seats available

Many school districts are in the process of installing solar photovoltaic panels on their facilities, or are thinking of doing so. Not that many have completed their solar projects or begun to realize energy savings/revenues. Our panel will include a Business Administrator from a school district which has been selling SRECS since 2009 and is now considering other energy projects, the Director of Marketing for an online auction for SRECS and other energy credits, and financial/energy advisors who have worked with numerous NJ Boards of Education on solar, energy and other capital projects.
