On March 26, the U.S. Department of Energy recognized Santee Education Complex, along with the District, through the Better Buildings Challenge for being an energy efficient campus. The school is on schedule to achieve 30% annual energy savings based on seven months partial post-completion data. Santee’s upgrades include: interior and exterior lighting, an energy management system, efficient domestic water heater and boiler, as well as the installation of occupancy sensors, and retro-commissioning the set points. These upgrades could result in an annual cost savings of $195,000. Congratulations to Santee, which is one of 18 schools in the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools’ network. Read more here.
