Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) has updated the performance of it energy savings program for County schools and related facilities. Loudoun implemented the program in 1993, which so far has led to $70 million in cost avoidance over the 23-year period.
John Lord, energy education specialist for LCPS, says energy savings for the 2015-2016 school year total more than $4.6 million, which amounts to a 28.9 percent reduction in utility costs for the district.
The program serves 98 buildings with more than 11 million square feet, 205 electricity meters, 100 natural gas meters, 80 water meters, 50 diesel meters (and generators), 50 propane meters and 15 heating oil meters.
LCPS has received the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award seven times and is a two-time winner of the Virginia Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award.
