Rochester City School District (RCSD) educates 34,000 students in more than 50 school buildings. RCSD's success in improving its energy efficiency by 10 percent reflects the superintendent and chief financial officer's understanding that energy efficiency and sound fiscal management go hand-in-hand.
In partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, RCSD assessed the efficiency of all its facilities and conducted a district-wide energy audit. This allowed RCSD to make smart investments in high-efficiency lighting, energy management systems, and HVAC systems, add vending machine motion sensors, and make other cost-effective energy upgrades. RCSD estimates that these improvements are reducing its energy bill by more than $850,000 annually.
