SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Environmentally conscious Utah schools can look to the state for help in making their campuses greener.

The State Energy program offers schools interest-free loans to improve energy efficiency. The money comes from a revolving fund the legislature awarded the Utah Geological Survey.

Loans of up to $250,000 are available and payments go back to the fund for more environmental programs. The goal is to reduce energy costs, saving the state money.

Program manager Philip Powlick says green schools teach kids to be responsible stewards of natural resources.
