Cuesta College

Cuesta College recently received a $40,888 energy incentive check from PG&E for energy saving projects completed at the college in association with Proposition 39.

The projects included installing a new chiller on the North County campus in Paso Robles; retrofitting exterior light fixtures on both the San Luis Obispo and North County campuses; and retrofitting light fixtures in the San Luis Obispo campus gym.

The estimated energy savings to the district over the life of the fixtures is more than $855,000.

San Miguel

Almond Acres Charter Academy students have put their service learning project to work by helping an elementary school affected by the Butte Fire, which burned more than 70,000 acres and 47 homes.

The students adopted Rail Road Flat Elementary — a small school with only 48 students — and provided them with blankets, books, toys, games, art and school supplies, letters of support and gift cards.
