Like most school districts in the nation, Junction City School District makes every effort to keep expenses at a minimum; while, still providing top quality education and a comfortable environment. Conserving energy dollars is one of the most direct and effective ways of reducing expenses. Junction City School District keeps a close watch on its energy budget, and is always open to opportunities to reduce that budget. Its interest in promoting energy innovation and energy savings is the {open_quotes}bottom line{close_quotes}--it wants to make the most efficient possible use of taxpayers` dollars. Pacific Power & Light serves Junction City High School with electricity.
