America's First Net Zero School (24 Hours of Reality 2016)

SHARE How does a school right in the heart of coal country Kentucky become the first net-zero energy school in the United States? Richardsville Elementary School did it through a combination of energy efficiency, solar power, and other green solutions. Today, Richardsville Elementary creates more power than it needs, selling the excess to the local utility. This provides more money for teachers and offers a green energy model for the country.
