Overview

AISD ENERGY MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW

CHECK OUT OUR VIRTUAL AWARDS CEREMONY NOW ON YOUTUBE!

The single most expensive commodity purchased by the AISD is energy. It is our goal, in fact our charge, to consume energy as efficiently as is possible without creating a negative impact on the learning environment.  We as a district can only succeed by involving all of the students, faculty, staff, and administration in our energy conservation efforts.

The Plant Services department is responsible for developing and implementing guidelines to manage our consumption of electricity, natural gas and water. A major tool is the  computerized Energy Management System (EMS). This system permits us to monitor and control the air conditioning systems in the majority of the district's facilities.

It is not our intent to adversely affect the indoor environment or personal health of our customers.   Use all the energy you need, but do not waste it.  Remember, no reduction in energy use is too small to capture, so please when possible, turn off lights; close exterior doors and windows; turn off computers, printers, and office equipment when they are not needed; and report water leaks and dripping faucets to the Plant Services Department.

If you have any questions or ideas at any time, please contact the Energy Manager.

“The district’s energy management goal is to continuously improve energy efficiency and reduce the resources we use by establishing and implementing effective energy-saving strategies districtwide while providing a safe and comfortable learning environment,” said Danny Helm, AISD Energy Manager. “Through our districtwide energy committee, the program brings awareness to all of our students, faculty, staff and administration on the impact their actions have on our environment for future generations.”

The district’s energy management program, started in 2011, is making a huge impact in the district’s energy consumption. Here are just four highlights of the program’s success. continue reading...
