First U.S. net zero school has 10-year checkup by Alec Holser for Seattle DJC

The LEED platinum Hood River Middle School Music and Science Wing was the first certified net zero energy public school in the country. Now, 10 years later, the project continues to perform exceptionally both technically in balancing energy use and production, but almost more importantly, as a real-life teaching tool for middle school students to easily understand their own direct effect on the consumption of energy and ultimately their impact to the larger environment and forces creating climate change.
