Schools Earn Cash For Cutting Energy Costs

October 24, 2017

Several local schools have been recognized for their efforts to reduce utility costs.

The Escambia County School District Energy Management Program was established 12 years ago and has helped the district avoid milllions in utility costs. Since just year, the school district’s utility consumption is down 11 percent.

According to the district, the success of the energy program has been driven not only by the efforts of the Energy Management, Maintenance and Facilities Planning departments, but also by the staff, faculties and students at all of the district’s campuses.

For the past five years, the program has expanded to include an incentive program the recognizes and rewards schools for changing their behavior to comply with energy management guidelines.

This year all 51  Escambia District schools will receive a monetary award ranging from $350 to $1,050 for their energy savings. During the October Escambia County School Board meeting energy managers Tiffany Clark and Jackie Smith recognized the top ECSD Energy Manager schools:

Brown Barge Middle School
Brentwood Elementary School
Ernest Ward Middle School
Ferry Pass Elementary School
Jim Allen Elementary School
Lipscomb Elementary School
Northview High School
Oakcrest Elementary School
Pleasant Grove Elementary School
A.K. Suter Elementary School
C.A. Weis Elementary School
West Pensacola Elementary School

    Congradulations to all! Although, when the electric company finds out you are saving money they will increase the rates. Hope our children are trying warm in winter and cool in summer. I am all for saving money though.
