EL DORADO, CA, February 19, 2019 – El Dorado Union High School District (EDUHSD), located 50 miles east of Sacramento, California, is partnering with Cenergistic to implement their Sustainability Solutions. EDUHSD is a top-rated public 9-12th grade school district with an enrollment of 6,740 students across six campuses which total over 700,000 square feet. Cenergistic expects EDUHSD to reclaim $2M dollars over the next five years.
Prior to Cenergistic, EDUHSD implemented Prop-39 energy and utility equipment upgrades and installed solar panels throughout district buildings, yet found additional funding was required to support the budget in preparation for rate increases from PG&E. The dollars saved with Cenergistic’s program will allow the district to mitigate higher utility rates and the expiration of Prop-39 funding.
“Cenergistic is thrilled to partner with El Dorado Union High School District to implement our Energy Sustainability Program. The full-time embedded energy specialist, equipped with our latest Ceres™ software, will work to ensure all facilities and systems are working at peak efficiency, to result in what we believe will be great success in both cost and energy savings. We are also enthusiastic to create a culture of sustainability among the entire organization and community,” said Nolan Cooper, Regional Vice President of Client Development at Cenergistic.
Included with the program is one full-time onsite Cenergistic Energy Specialist, access to Cenergistic’s Center of Excellence which includes both remote and onsite engineering and M&V experts, and Cenergistic’s Ceres™ cloud-based, machine learning software used by the energy specialist to optimize EDUHSD’s equipment and energy usage across all buildings and facilities.
Cenergistic will also help EDUHSD qualify its buildings for ENERGY STAR® certifications and awards with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Additionally, leadership and administration are enthusiastic about the mindset of conservation and culture of sustainability among staff and students that the partnership with Cenergistic will bring.
