Cenergistic regularly discovers, diagnoses and helps resolve challenges that existed before the partnership began. An example in Riverside dealt with the district’s energy management systems (EMS). 

Some of the feedback cables and proof points on RUSD’s EMS had been damaged during a switch to automation. These damaged wires prevented vital information about districtwide energy use from being relayed to the EMS. The missing feedback data was not immediately evident, so facility employees had no way of knowing about excessive energy use.
