  • Energy costs are the largest operating expense for school districts after salaries and benefits (
  • Space heating, cooling, and lighting together account for nearly 70 percent of school energy use (
  • Most states have rebate incentive programs available to education for energy efficiency projects
  • Green schools use, on average, 30-50% less energy (Greening America's Schools Report, 1996)

Cost savings initiatives have evolved into energy efficiency, conservation, and environmental responsibility strategies. Maximizing the energy efficiency of schools is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to extend energy supplies and manage energy use. Graybar provides school districts (K-12), colleges and universities nationwide access to an array of products and services to help meet your energy management goals of increasing efficiency, reducing energy consumption and lowering energy-related costs.
