Energy conservation success

Through a spirit of cooperation, the Energy Team has realized energy conservation success

Since its inception, the Team has helped to identify and monitor conservation programs District-wide; the operation of mechanical systems; and the daily practices of the end users (occupants) which incorporates an educational component. (The 2014 and 2015 M&O Year End Reports conveyed the many FD+C, M&O, and energy curriculum successes of the District’s energy conservation programs.)

Since the 2013-14 FY, the Energy Team has saved 68,497 thermal units of energy (in spite of a 3.3% increase in square footage), equivalent to $583,000 in energy costs. In addition, the District has reduced water consumption by 63 million gallons since 2014, a 12% decrease which helps counteract significant water utility rate increases.
