MESQUITE, Texas – Mesquite Independent School District (MISD) recently announced its partnership with Cenergistic, a national energy conservation company, has yielded savings of $2 million. The program has also led to a 12 percent decrease in energy consumption since the program’s start in 2017.
The success of the hand-in-hand partnership has drastically reduced MISD’s carbon footprint. The carbon emissions avoided from the energy program equate to approximately 30 million miles driven or the energy use of 2,089 houses in a year.
“The partnership with Cenergistic has advanced our environmental efforts by leaps and bounds,” said David Vroonland, MISD Superintendent. “The success of the energy conservation program has shown we can lead the way when it comes to energy conservation.”
Since 1986 Cenergistic has partnered with 1450+ educational, municipal government and healthcare organizations to achieve $5.8 billion in utility savings and cost avoidance. These strong results come from the application of Cenergistic’s organizational behavior-based strategies and are enhanced by our proprietary software platform to drive building and equipment optimization. Our energy conservation program reduces utility consumption by an average of 25% with no capital investment while maintaining or improving the comfort and quality of building environments. For more than a decade, Cenergistic has been recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency as ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year or Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence.
