We have implemented several re-lighting projects in the schools using our internal maintenance and custodial team members that will allow us to obtain savings that will continue each year.
The Scott County School District Energy Management results have been published many times in the local paper plus some national publications. We were featured in a national webinar in March 2011 with the success that we have achieved. We have presented our program at the Kentucky/Tennessee Plant Manager’s Conference.
Northern Elementary won the EPA National Building Competition for the State of Kentucky with a 28.55% reduction in energy in one year.
The Energy Manager has achieved his Certified Energy Manager (CEM) certification.
Scott County Schools was the first school district in the state to earn all three awards given by the Kentucky Energy Efficiency Program for Schools (KEEPS) to recognize achievements in Energy Management by school teams. In September, KEEPS representatives awarded the Stewardship Award, the Champion Award and the Leadership Award. During the first year of the KEEPS awards program, Scott County was the only school district to earn all three awards. On February 13, 2012, Scott County became the first school district in Kentucky to be awarded the EPA Energy Star Leader Award for Top Overall Energy Performance with a Portfolio Rating of over 75. Georgetown Middle Schools received the Green Ribbon Schools Award presented by the US Department of Education which was one of only three schools from Kentucky that won this award.
The energy management program has followed the district vision statement “to create a collaborative culture to ensure student learning”. We have worked collaboratively with many community partners to engage them in the process. We have also worked with students and staff at each school to work together to achieve the savings that have been obtained. Student learning will be ensured by providing a comfortable environment for all students and staff.
