New award recognizes California leadership in zero net energy schools

California is leading the nation in the transformation of K-12 schools and community colleges to zero net energy (ZNE) performance. To honor early innovation and leadership in this market, nine inaugural ZNE School Leadership Awards were given on behalf of the California Investor owned Utilities Prop 39 ZNE School Pilot Program to showcase the people, buildings and districts that are driving this new standard for school environments. ZNE schools are high performance buildings that combine energy efficiency and renewable energy resources to produce at least as much energy as they consume annually.
