GREEN BAY (AP) - The Green Bay School District says it has saved millions of dollars over the past decade by conserving energy in its buildings.
The district says using energy-efficient light bulbs, turning off or dimming lights, maintaining heating and cooling systems in good condition and avoiding heavy energy use during peak times have saved it about $10 million.
The district also has reduced its use of natural gas and electricity over the years, leading to less carbon dioxide emissions.
The district's facilities director, Mike Stangel, told the Green Bay Press-Gazette for a story published Monday that other districts are using its efforts as a model. Monday is Earth Day.
