State school building authority says at least one new facility every year will be LEED silver-certified

From The Beckley Register-Herald: Students in West Virginia’s future public schools may not just learn about energy efficiency, but they may learn inside an energy-efficient building. Mark A. Manchin, executive director of the state School Building Authority, says the authority aims to build at least one new school every year that is LEED silver-certified. Already, one LEED Silver-certified school is under construction in Berkeley County, Manchin says. Another LEED Silver school project will be named sometime this year.
