Added to the wonderful features described in the article (“SFPS prepares to unveil new schools” July 7), we have also responded to energy and water conservation priorities. The combined 140 kilowatt total from the two new solar carports will save the taxpayers approximately $30,000 annually at current Public Service Co. of New Mexico rates and offset carbon emissions by 396,144 pounds each year, boosting Santa Fe Public Schools’ solar generation to nearly a half megawatt by fall 2014. A 25,000-gallon water catchment cistern is online at Atalaya Elementary, and 1.28 gallon flush toilets, half-gallon flush urinals and faucet aerators are a SFPS standard now. The new tracks and fields are synthetic turf, the landscaping is on drip irrigation and drought-tolerant, our heating and cooling are centrally controlled. All three new schools will have interactive touchscreen and Web-enabled energy/water/solar monitoring dashboards to share real-time data with staff, students and community members.
