Top 30 K-12 Schools icon.The Top 30 K-12 Schools list represents the largest green power users among K-12 school partners within the Green Power Partnership. The combined green power use of these organizations amounts to more than 196 million kilowatt-hours of green power annually, which is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity use of nearly 19,000 average American homes each year.

Utilizing green power...conveys to our students the important role and responsibility that all of us have in safeguarding our environment today and in the future.
- Dr. Pat Murphy, Arlington County Public Schools
