D.C. And Baltimore Private Schools In Green Competition

By Kate Sheehy

Private schools from the Washington and Baltimore area are engaged in a friendly competition to save energy.

'Going green' has become a familiar term. But it now carries a significant meaning for students in D.C. and Baltimore.

The Washington Post reports that students at private schools, including Sidwell Friends and the Norwood School, are involved in buying wind power and putting in solar panels.

The Post notes that public schools are also making efforts to incorporate energy saving technology but private schools have deeper pockets and more flexibility for more expansive projects.

Educators says this is bringing about a 'healthy' competition among schools and teaches students about energy use. School administrators also say the projects are providing students with a unique connection to their school.
