Sheldon ISD has teamed up with Cenergistic to develop a behavior-based energy management program to reduce the amount of money the district spends on utilities. Cenergistic is a technology-powered, data-driven energy conservation company that has helped school districts and other educational organizations nationwide reduce energy consumption, which allows funds to stay in the classroom. The program helps maximize energy efficiency through the district with proper consideration given to environmental and safety issues. The Energy Management Department is responsible for the implementation, operation and enforcement of the program.
This is more than just a short term “go green” project. It is a comprehensive, sustainable plan designed to address behavioral, mechanical and logistical use of our facilities, in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and be good stewards of taxpayer funds. The Sheldon ISD energy management program will sustain safe, comfortable school environments conducive to learning while ensuring efficient use of facilities and resources and reducing the division’s environmental impact.
