C-RCS saves $1.55 million in energy costs

For the past six years, C-RCS has partnered with Energy Education, Inc. to discover ways in which the district could conserve energy use and be more efficient.

The program focused on implementing behavioral changes — such as turning off lights and computers when not in use — and organizational changes — such as devise ways to lower consumption when school is not in session — to substantially reduce energy costs without needing to spend capital up front.

To date, the district has a 30 percent savings rate, which equals about $1.55 million saved on energy costs.

C-RCS Board of Education President Bruce Tryon offered congratulations to Bill Himme, C-RCS Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds, and his team for the work they did to make this program a success.

“That’s a huge achievement,” Tryon said.

Jim Galletly of Energy Education was on hand to present plaques to the district as well as a check symbolizing the district’s savings to date.
