San Bernardino City Unified #1 In Nation Among School Districts Earning ENERGY STAR Certifications

Cenergistic client San Bernardino City Unified School District is the only school district in the nation to earn Executive Member status as part of a new national Certification Nation campaign being conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program.

With Cenergistic’s assistance, the District has earned the ENERGY STAR certification for 63 buildings in 2014, more than any other school district in the country to date. The District is in the top 10 of organizations that have certified 50 or more buildings in 2014, according to the federal agency.

As part of the Certification Nation campaign, EPA and Cenergistic officials were on hand to congratulate the district at a school board meeting on Tuesday when 10 of the schools were recognized for earning ENERGY STAR certification. The District has saved more than $5 million in electricity costs since hiring Cenergistic in 2012 to help it reduce its energy consumption.
