Paying for Itself
Wilkinson, Ron
American School & University, v81 n12 p19-21 Jul 2009
Many schools and universities want the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED certification for their facilities, but they are concerned about cost. This certification is tangible evidence that a facility is designed to conserve resources and use energy more efficiently. "Low-cost/no-cost" upgrades can be worked into a capital plan that provides a 3- to 5-year energy savings payback and achieves LEED certification. This article discusses how schools and universities can fit LEED certification into a capital plan.
