Marietta Sixth Grade Academy Wins Overall
District 2013 “Save-A-Watt” Energy Challenge
School cuts 17 percent from their utility usage

MARIETTA, GA -Marietta Sixth Grade Academy (MSGA) claims the overall win for the Marietta City Schools (MCS) 2013 “Save-A-Watt” energy challenge by achieving a 17 percent average energy-use reduction for the period September 2012 – April 2013. Total energy-use reductions district-wide for the period averaged four percent, and represented Save-A-Watt
conservation savings totaling $32,000.

“The support and commitment of our staff and students during this year’s challenge once again brought the concepts of energy conservation to life in the classroom. MSGA along with our other schools achieving energy reductions will share in a percentage of the $32,000 total district savings,” said Dr. Emily Lembeck, MCS Superintendent.

“This year, MSGA claimed the overall win and the 1st semester win, West Side Elementary claimed a 2nd semester win by achieving an average 12% savings for the period,” added Lembeck.

In September 2009, MCS launched Save-A-Watt, an energy conservation initiative resulting from a partnership with Marietta Power & Water (MPW) and Apogee Interactive, Inc.designed to decrease electrical consumption among MCS elementary and secondary schools and identify sustainable energy conservation methods.
