Over 36 Years of Energy Conservation

Dr. William S. Spears, founder of the energy conservation company Cenergistic served on the Wichita Falls, Texas school board and solved the district’s budgetary shortfall by inventing the nation’s first utility savings program. In just one year, the district was able to absorb a 67% increase in air conditioning load and still see a year-over-year decrease to its electricity expense. That was the first step in our journey to help our clients create a positive impact in sustainability.
