Profile created 4/12/10 Updated 1/9/16, 4/10/17

Update January 2012: Most trailers removed as part of the past energy conservation processes put into effect by Administration.

The following schools have (or had) trailers due mainly to building capacity / student population. Assumption is that all heating / cooling is electric and controlled manually by individual thermostats within each trailer as they are used teaching purposes.

42 in 2009. Trailers are meant to be temporary so these numbers maybe subject to change at any moment. Building 2 new schools Kettle Run HS and Greenville ES may have reduced the overall need for trailers in Fauquier County Public Schools.

Based on historical data there are 42 trailers of different sizes / layouts in 8 schools.

From high to low (quantity by school type):

HS - (13) 10,584 square feet Liberty
HS - (10) 15,072 square feet Fauquier

ES - (6) 4,900 square feet Grace Miller
ES - (4) 3,408 square feet PB Smith
ES - (4) 3,408 square feet Pierce
ES - (2) 1,728 square feet Ritchie

MS - (2) 1,728 square feet Warrenton
MS - (1) 864 square feet Taylor

Estimated cost (complete details not available) is 108,720kWh / $10,413 / year for the 6 modules at Grace Miller which equals $1,735.50 / unit, or $72,890 / year. Note: Estimate increased to $75K per annum based on additional feedback / data

Total square footage for all 42 units is 41,292 which equals an additional (small) school with 42 rooms (compares in size to a Middle School) and cost wise on an annual basis is comparable to Claude Thompson Elementary School.

Trailers are inherently inefficient with respect to energy used for heating / cooling which is confirmed by these numbers when compared to permanent structures.

Benchmark #12: Student occupancy - Not available (not included in energy cost per student calculations)

Fauquier County Conservation Roundtable (FCCR) meets quarterly and on April 23 2012 the keynote speaker was Michael Rainger. His presentation included a 5 year history of conservation / sustainability efforts for Fauquier County Virginia with a theme of Finite Energy Conservation / Renewable Technologies leading to more sustainable communities with links to disaster recovery from natural events. 

A discussion ensued around accurate / direct taxpayer cost savings bench marked on prior high year energy costs (FY09) and true cost avoidance when electric power utility rates and surcharges combined with other fuel expense increases are averaging around 10% per year (FY05 to FY09 normalized for weather and 2 new schools coming online).

The PDF (only 9 pages above - click to view) outlines the results of that discussion and further research by Better Practices (2004 - 2012), Energized research - Learning Institute (2013), and Brighter Communities Corporation (2014)

2017 update?

Last updated April 10, 2017

Some items from the 2010 external maintenance "review / audit" (by external volunteers working for free) corrected

Here are some of the completed projects / highlights:

1) School signs standardized / replaced and incorrect spelling of "Buses" removed (Liberty)

2) Walk / bike to school project receives grant to improve access paths under busy Rt.29 (Mary Walter)

3) Crossing signs improved with flashing 25mph lights

4) Pilot project to retrofit efficient lighting systems completed summer of 2011 (P B Smith)

5) Energy costs / per unit usage remain relatively constant for FY10 - FY12 (FCPS) saving $500K per year since FY09

6) FHS renovation / new building in progress with geothermal. passive solar and efficient lighting systems under construction (LEED certified)

7) Local businesses support nature walk at Greenville elementary

8) Student maintained gardens flourish at some schools (update list please for 2017? send details to community@er-li.com )

9) Energy workshops completed (FCPS Human Resources for shared services, Town of Warrenton Library, Executive team, etc.)

Foundation’s first affordable housing project outside Middleburg was made possible by generous local support and tax credit financing. The project comprises 7 two-bedroom and 9 three-bedroom units with two fully handicapped accessible. The 16 units are in five buildings and certified as “green” by EarthCraft Virginia


First 3 photos show Buildings #3 - #1. Mouse-over photos to see text for each one then click for larger image in separate window


Dominion Virginia Power: Meters not going backwards - but going forward slowly - 300 kWh in July 2012 in one unit = $35 / month


Photo #5 is lower half of geothermal unit and photo #6 is upper half in ground floor closet. External air still periodically circulates inside units even when thermostat is in the "off" position.


Photo #7 sign located on Fauquier Avenue in The Plains south of Rt.50, post office, fire station #4, business / historical districts, and north of I66, Farmers Market, Seasonal Amazing Maze, and Wakefield School


Other energy efficient features include water saver bathrooms, Energy Star appliances, metal roofs, extra insulation in the attics / walls, covered porches and energy saving windows. Entrance to the attic is specially insulated along with internal water heater pipes (EarthCraft requirements)


Note: Water heaters noisily "blow" cold air periodically - great conversation ice breaker!
