Build Green School & Save $100,000 Per Year

Greening America’s Schools, a report from consulting firm Capital E, finds that building green would save an average school $100,000 each year – enough to hire two new additional full-time teachers. According to the report (pdf), green schools – schools designed to be energy efficient, healthy and environmentally friendly – are extremely cost-effective. Total financial benefits from green schools outweigh the costs 20 to 1. With over $35 billion dollars projected to be spent in 2007 on K-12 construction, the conclusions could have far-reaching implications for future school design.
