Click Entity in narrow dark blue navigation bar (above) to View (right column). Mouse over photos for captions / click to enlarge / click yellow link / click PDF Created 11/1/12 Updated March 2013 January 2016 and April 2017


Photo #1: Strategy. Leadership. Money. Positive Publicity. Communities create mutual success / support for individual efforts!  Overview of local folks making a difference since 2008 by perseverance, and creating positive change. 1) Schools 2) County 3) Vint Hill EDA 4) Commercial 5) Residential 6) Town of Warrenton: Case study on how NOT to do it (all talk / no action)! Note: ToW approved first roundabout near WalMart in 2017 YEA!


Photo #2: Vision. Mission. Money. Commitment. School Support Counsel and guests visit to Sidwell Friends in January 2009 was an eye-opener. The TOP 1% are preparing their children for a New Beginning." Cost was $35K+ / year / student. In 2013 our first "Building that teaches" is dedicated. A new "culture" at FHS allows students to educate peers, teachers, staff, alumni, dignitaries, guests, and parents. 60 minute "tours" show where we were in the fifties, where we are today, and where we will be tomorrow. 


Photo #3: Daily operations are key to future success. School Administration, Executives, BOS, Principals, Teachers and ALL staff need to continually know / recognize best practices in fields of expertise, bus drivers included.


Photo #4: Students travel for sports. At this Virginia High School they park in front of the aquatic center (2 indoor pools), planetarium, and school administrative office building. How intimidating is that? Washington Lee High School in Arlington hosted the Virginia Conservation Network (VCN) Annual Meeting on 20th October 2012. Tim Kaine / Chris Miller presented to attendees. Michael Rainger talked about our own public school system. Fauquier High School can be the same magnet due to leading-edge energy related technologies. The community "theatre" is a perfect starting point for tours of the new wing.


Photo #5: Learning from our rich history: Airlie Island of Thought ('60s), FHS Solar / PEC / CFFC ('70s). What to do now? Islands of Excellence has a certain ring to it? Recognizes historical achievements. Publicizes current projects that are more sustainable. Strategizes for our collective future.


1) $30M of Capital Improvements (2010 estimates) in our schools takes them net zero and saves about $3M per year at current fuel / utility prices. ROI of 10 years. Power out. Lights stay on. Emergency preparedness link. Jobs! Local economic benefits.


2) Think BIG Thoughts - compare to other school districts


3) Encourage leadership cooperation - BOS


4) Engage students, parents, teachers, staff more than now


5) Ensure continuous sustainable improvement


6) Track results


7) CELEBRATE each and every SUCCESS!

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!
