Education takes priority

The education process takes priority in energy saving programs

This cannot be overstressed: APS is first and foremost in the education business. FD+C may be responsible for designing and constructing the schools while M&O is responsible for maintaining and preserving them, but whether it’s erecting the schools or servicing them, it is all done in support of what transpires in them — educating children. As driven as the Energy Team is to eradicating electric, gas, and water waste, it will be done without ever forfeiting the quality of the education process. Electric juice will power all needed technology and related apparatuses in the schools; the quality and quantity of lighting will never be insufficient; and students will never be distracted by classrooms that are too chilly or too warm. Education needs are met first; eliminating waste is undertaken second.
