The mission of the ECISD Energy Management Program is to save money and energy through the conservationand efficient use of natural gas, water, and electricity, while maintaining a safe and comfortable learning environment.
Goals...• Change the way staff thinks about energy and its usage to reflect an attitude of conservation.• Maintain the comfort and safety of the learning environment.• Use our utility resources wisely.• Achieve at least a 25% reduction in our energy bills.
In May, 2012, the ECISD Board of Trustees approved a partnership with Cenergistic (formally Energy Education), a firm whose mission is to help organizations reduce their overall utility usage and operations cost by providing a combination of tools, training, technology, engineering and analysis that are guaranteed to reduce energy costs. Projected cost savings during this partnership will be over $10 million over a ten-year period.
Overall cost avoidance (savings) from May 2012 - July 2017: $8,236,566 (25.2% reduction) & counting.
