Prince William County Schools Recognized For Saving Energy

ENERGY STAR’s national Certification Nation campaign is featuring an article on the success of Prince William County Schools and their efforts to conserve energy.   The article states: “Prince William County Schools educates more than 85,000 students in more than 90 school buildings in Virginia. With such a big portfolio, the district knew that managing its energy use was critical. So school leaders embarked on a program to reduce their energy use. Their plan involved administrators, teachers, and students, and it was a huge success. The energy conservation program, put in place with Cenergistic, is now paying off for local taxpayers as the school district expects to save $8 million on energy costs over the next three years by reducing energy use that will be the equivalent of taking thousands of cars off the road. “That’s the kind of result we owe our community and the kind of example we are proud to set for our students,” said Deputy Superintendent Rae Darlington. Congratulations to Prince William County Schools on becoming a Premier Member of Certification Nation! “
