School Chancellor Carmen Farina (fah-REEN'-yah) joined students and faculty on Thursday to dedicate the Kathleen Grimm School of Leadership and Sustainability at Sandy Ground, or Public School 62, on Staten Island.
Officials say the school is city's the first "net-zero" energy school.
Its solar panels, wind turbine and geothermal heating and cooling systems are designed to produce as much energy as the building uses.
Grimm oversaw planning for the school as deputy chancellor for operations. She died of cancer in February at age 68.
The school opened in September.
