Two schools in rural Susquehanna County, PA are saving big bucks and helping the environment at the same time–by switching to burning natural gas. One of those schools, Elk Lake, has made millions of dollars in royalties by hosting two shale wells *on school property* (see Elk Lake School LOVES Their 2 Marcellus Shale Wells & Gas Heat). No, Elk Lake doesn’t stick a pipe into their wells (the gas has to get cleaned up first). But Elk Lake, and the Montrose School District, are beneficiaries of gas produced literally in their own backyards. Students are the ultimate winners. The money saved by switching to natural gas heating gets spent on the kids, rather than going to buy oil from Saudi Arabia.
