School Facilities (pdf)
*In FY12, school facilities account for 49% of the City's total building area and 32% of the City's total energy use, by far the largest energy user of any facility type in the City.
*Over the past four years, energy use decreased 28% and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions have decreased 32%, primarily due to energy conservation measures in 10 buildings, energy awareness programs through the Cambridge Green Schools Initiative, and mild winter weather in FY12.
*In FY12 and FY13, the City invested close to $700,000 in school energy projects for an estimated savings of 4,500 MMBtu of energy, avoiding almost $160,000 in energy cost and 470 tons of CO2e emissions annually.
*The Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School renovation, completed in September 2011,expects to receive a LEED Silver rating for new construction.
