A local school is doing its part to become energy efficient. Representative Lois Capps, (D) 23rd District, toured Oceano Elementary. It's taking steps to transform itself into a sustainable school. The elementary was able to install a solar panel through a grant from PG&E. It has also started a community garden and a recycling program.
Capps talked about why the changes were so important. Capps said, "To upgrade it with more green building renewable energy to cut down on their energy costs and to make it a healthier environment for the children."
Other programs at the school provide incentives to children to walk and bike to school.
