Since September of 2014, USD 475 has partnered with Cenergistic, to participate in their Energy Conservation Program. They have worked together to reduce the energy consumption of the buildings in the district, and the savings have added up.
Lynn Pace, Vice President of Client Development at Cenergistic, attended the Board of Education meeting this week to present USD 475 with the Pacesetter Award. The Pacesetter Award was given to congratulate USD 475 for being in the top 25% pf school districts when it comes to energy conservation.
Lynn also presented the Board with a certificate for more than $3,000,000 in energy cost savings. USD 475 has saved that money on energy costs, and in turn, has been able to redirect those funds to directly benefit the education of students.
