The cost of utilities is the second largest budget line-item for Broken Arrow Public Schools, and the prices for electricity, natural gas, heating oil and water have been steadily increasing. To combat these rising energy and utility costs, Broken Arrow Public Schools entered a partnership with Cenergistic to implement a comprehensive organizational behavior-driven energy conservation program throughout all its buildings and campuses. Cenergistic guarantees the conservation program will save taxpayer dollars. Since the program was first implemented, Broken Arrow Public Schools has reduced its energy consumption by 22.1%.

Broken Arrow Public Schools’ comprehensive energy conservation program addresses energy use throughout the organization. The energy specialist, Jadon Dykes, tracks energy consumption at all campuses through state-of-the-art technology to identify and correct areas where energy is over-used. Mr. Dykes works closely with district personnel as well as Cenergistic engineers and experts to continually optimize systems and schedules. Together they monitor energy use with advanced technology and shape energy-using practices through education — affecting how each person in the organization understands, uses, and saves energy for years to come. The outcome is healthier, more efficient buildings using less energy — and lower related costs.

Cenergistic client energy conservation programs have saved more than $6.7 billion for educational, governmental, and ministerial organizations since 1986. Its science-based programs and patented technologies are designed to optimize energy performance and create budget flexibility to help allocate savings where partners need it most. This customized energy conservation management approach provides clients with more control over energy use with no upfront costs, no new equipment, and no equipment retrofits.
