Johnston, Iowa —Johnston Community School District has completed four years of its energy conservation partnership with Energy Education with a 29 percent savings totaling $1,182,130.00
“Johnston Community School District has successfully implemented Energy Education’s organizational behavior-based approach to energy conservation. The buildings and grounds leadership, along with other administration, faculty and staff members deserve recognition for their commitment to being good stewards of taxpayers’ dollars and the environment,” said Dr. William S. Spears, Chairman and Founder of Energy Education.
While Johnston schools have finished the paid contract term of its program and no longer share savings with Energy Education, the company’s service to the school district will continue on an as-needed basis to help ensure that the program continues to achieve considerable savings. Energy Education consultants will continue to work with district personnel on conservation techniques and data analysis as requested, providing ongoing training and support free of charge.
“Our partnership with Energy Education has been tremendously beneficial,” said Tim Kline, Director of Buildings and Grounds for Johnston Community School District. “The company’s expertise, training, and support has completely changed our culture from one of unintentional energy waste to intentional energy savings. As a result we have saved money by reducing consumption and we have demonstrated good stewardship of the environment. We have a new culture that will benefit Johnston students and schools for years to come.”
