(AMERICAN FORK, Utah, Feb. 14, 2020) – To recognize a 16 percent reduction in districtwide energy consumption and 60 newly certified ENERGY STAR® facilities, Cenergistic, a nationwide sustainability company, presented Alpine School District (ASD) with its prestigious Energy Excellence Award.

The Energy Excellence award is given to clients who have reached noteworthy financial savings from an energy program. In the case of ASD, the program has created a significant environmental impact as well. The energy conserved from the program equates to avoiding the carbon emissions produced by the average car driving approximately 41 million miles.

To find savings, ASD personnel work closely with Cenergistic engineers, experts and the Energy Specialist to audit and optimize energy-using systems across the organization to achieve peak efficiency. The Energy Specialist tracks energy consumption at all campuses through state-of-the-art smart technology to identify and correct areas that need immediate attention. This partnership is essential to creating a districtwide culture of sustainability among students, staff and the community.

“We commend Alpine School District’s administration and staff members for their commitment to the success of the energy program,” said Gary Clark, Regional Vice President at Cenergistic. “Reaching this level of savings has had a significant impact on the financial and environmental resources of the district. I am extremely pleased to present ASD with our Energy Excellence Award.”
