Green School Saves Money - Eastwood uses half the power of the 2 previous schools.

The Dominion Post - 06/26/13

Eastwood Elementary School is living up to its “green school” title. Monongalia County Schools Superintendent Dr. Frank Devono said the school’s energy bill for just one month was $5,000 less than each of the bills for Mylan Park and Skyview elementaries, two of the district’s other newer schools. Devono lauded Eastwood’s energy efficiency at Tuesday night’s board of education (BOE) meeting. Even at peak usage, Eastwood still used half the electricity of the other schools. Devono said the savings were so shocking, the Mon Power meter reader checked it twice because he thought something was wrong. The 71,541-square-foot school sits at the intersection of W.Va. 705 and Mileground Road. It opened April 3 to about 480 students, mostly from shuttered Easton and Woodburn elementaries, in pre-K through fifth grade.
