Wood was recently recognized for our reducing our electric and natural gas energy use for the first quarter (July-September). This has been a big focus in our district to save costs and become more energy efficient. We were able to reduce our usage by 3.4% despite being open throughout the summer for summer school and having 76% more heating degree days and 55% more cooling degree days!
Davenport Community School District currently has the lowest cost per square foot out of 34 Iowa public schools who report their energy consumption. Wood is second to Smart Intermediate in decreasing energy costs.
