Upcoming ZNE School Retrofit Workshops in San Diego
|ZNE schools offer better learning environments|
|Join a ZNE School Retrofit Workshop to find out how K-12 schools and community colleges can enhance spaces for academic success Zero net energy (ZNE) K-12 schools and community colleges support better quality of education for students by providing access to natural ventilation that brings in fresh air and daylighting.* Join a no-cost ZNE School Retrofit Workshops to learn how existing schools can achieve ZNE through whole-building retrofits.
ZNE schools are high performance buildings that combine energy efficiency and renewable resources to produce at least as much energy as they consume annually. Proposition 39 provides renovation projects with additional financial resources that can help transform some of California’s K-12 and community college buildings to ZNE.
