Cool Schools

Dear Community Members:

On June 23, 2011 the Governor signed legislation for energy retrofits in school districts - - the legislation was called the Cool Schools Bill. Dallas School District was asked to participate in the ceremonial signing of the bill at a press conference. It was a chance to highlight the energy projects we've completed in our school district, promote two Dallas area local contractors and share the energy savings we have seen as a result of our projects. 

The energy projects were funded through a combination of Bond dollars, federal stimulus dollars through the American's Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), Energy Trust dollars and money allocated from our Pacific Power bills specifically for energy projects.

Since 2007 Dallas School District has completed the following upgrades:

 

Many of the projects were essential because of aging and failing equipment, but the energy savings have been an exciting benefit to the work. As a result of these projects:

Two Dallas local contractors Forbes Plumbing and DC Electric were able to share the impact these projects have made locally in their business. Both expressed appreciation for the commitment Dallas School District made to hire local contractors. Both Justin from DC Electric and Sean from Forbes Plumbing shared that they were able to bring employees on unemployment back to work in our community.
