Why do we need energy management?

EPA: One out of every four dollars spent on energy in U.S. schools is wasted. Conservatively, 25% = $1.5 billion annually. Energy (heating fuel, electricity and water) costs can total as much as 1.5% to 3.5% of a school district’s annual budget. Due to limited financial resources for K-12 education, ongoing cost reductions are an unavoidable reality. Reducing a district’s expenditures for energy can be a positive result for all parties.

Services Provided

  • Working with the administrative and facilities teams to provide leadership for the development and implementation of energy conservation efforts within the district.
    Develop and implement district-wide tracking of energy consumption and costs.
  • Assist districts to participate in programs that publicly acknowledge their successful energy conservation efforts: EPA Energy Star, Green Globes, Green Ribbon Schools, etc.
  • Perform training activities on energy conservation methods for faculty and staff.
