Assembly member Nancy Skinner has introduced legislation that would help our schools save lots of money in the future by investing in energy efficiency upgrades today. AB 1186 establishes a dedicated school energy efficiency program for deep energy retrofits of public K-12 schools. Districts that have made similar upgrades have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. With our state’s public school budget cuts, these savings can keep teachers in classrooms, create local green jobs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Ella Baker Center has an action center with a video about this bill, and a chance for you to send a message of support to the California Senate!
