Energy Star Challenge
In A Positive Step Toward Reducing Energy Use, Midlothian ISD Has Taken The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ENERGY STAR Challenge. The Goal Is To Improve The Energy Efficiency Of America's Commercial And Industrial Buildings By 10 Percent Or More.
"It's win-win for us to save energy and improve the bottom line," said Craig Carpenter, MISD Energy Manager. "The ENERGY STAR challenge will provide additional tools and resources to identify areas for energy efficiency improvements."
The district has a comprehensive Energy Management program to control the cost of every kilowatt-hour consumed, maintain energy-using systems in peak condition, and secure support at the campus level. The district tracks building energy use to calculate the financial impact of its energy efficiency efforts, allowing officials to identify consumption issues and revise its procurement strategy.
