As our first year comes to a close and we look ahead to 2013, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you to our Energy Association of Iowa Schools (EAIS) members. Your membership gave us the energy to power up as a brand new organization. We appreciate you.

2012 was an exciting year of 30 new members, coaching on needs ranging from boiler replacements to roof insulation, and writing and receiving lighting grants for 11 interested E-members. Working together, we have already saved Iowa schools and taxers almost $80,000 in up-front project costs and enabled $162,500 to be contributed to the Iowa economy. And this is just the beginning.

This new year promises to be another good one full of unbiased information, grants and connections, building operator professional development and building-specific energy coaching. As always, if there is anything we can do to make your Iowa school energy lives easier, please send us an email, message us via our website, or call. We are your organization!

Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and energy efficient New Year,
Julie, Kelly & the entire EAIS board of directors and family
