Going Grid Neutral at California Schools

2008: State and Consumer Services Agency Secretary Rosario Marin  announced the release of California's "grid neutral" guidebook; a step-by-step guide to help California schools and community colleges cut energy costs through on-site electricity generation.

The program was spearheaded by the California State Architect and a team of environmental experts. It is the first comprehensive program for schools to use to create campuses that generate as much electrical energy as they consume in a year.

Windustry staff thought that it might be useful to share these ideas with a wider audience.  While there is only a small segment specifically about wind energy, many ideas contained in this guidebook could be useful in other states.
