Ms. Elisabeth Bertrand, Special Projects Director, Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG), AMBAG Energy Watch, presented SLVUSD with this special award. She reported the award was in recognition of the great work SLV accomplished by reducing energy use and related greenhouse gases through the installation of energy efficiency equipment.
SLVUSD has been working with AMBAG Energy Watch since 2014 to support the school district with projects under the California Clean Energy Jobs Act K-12 Program - Prop 39 to improve energy efficiency throughout the District. Under Proposition 39, SLVUSD received approximately $740K over five years. With these funds, the district projects have included replacing interior and exterior lighting across all campuses, Boiler and HVAC replacements, smart thermostats, and improvements to our Energy Management System. These energy projects have saved the District approximately $60K annually in energy expenses.
