Improving Efficiency

Polk County Public Schools’ Energy Management department helps to improve energy efficiency to save the planet’s nonrenewable resources; helps maintain a quality learning environment for students, teachers, and staff; and helps save dollars that the school district can productively reinvest in ongoing educational activities.

Since its inception in 1991, the Energy Management department has achieved a cost avoidance of more than $89,000,000. While the school district’s square footage has increased by over 74 percent, electricity usage has increased by only 17 percent, and gas and water usage have actually decreased by 40 percent and almost 35 percent respectively.
