PRYOR CREEK, Okla. — One year after implementing an energy conservation partnership with Cenergistic, a nationwide sustainability company, Pryor Public Schools (PPS) announces a 23 percent decrease in energy consumption.
“To find savings this quickly shows the effectiveness of this partnership,” said Jason Johnson, PPS Chief Financial Officer. “We hope to create even greater savings over the coming years.”
To find opportunities for savings, PPS personnel work closely with Cenergistic 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 with leading state-of-the-art technology to identify waste and drive conservation. During the COVID-19 shutdown, the Energy Specialist continues to audit district facilities for energy inefficiencies, albeit more remotely.
