Judson Receives "Outstanding School District Award for 2020" From the Texas Energy Summit
From: Doug Lewin
Director Texas Energy Summit
"School districts use a lot of energy. That energy, with our current mix of electric generation, causes pollution and all of us as taxpayers pay the bills. As many school energy managers say, every dollar they save on energy is a dollar that can go to teachers, books, computers—in a word, learning. Many school districts work hard to reduce these costs and we try to honor at least one each year at the Summit. In recent years we honored the Texas Energy Managers Association for their work to train the energy management workforce, add credentials for these hard working folks, and help school districts save on energy and other utility costs. Over the last two years, Judson ISD has completed energy efficiency projects that will save them over 440kW (enough to power 60-70 homes on a hot day), and 1.7m kWh annually (equal to about 100 homes over the course of year). Judson ISD has also been a leader in the CPS Commercial Demand Response program, tallying over 9.9 MW of peak demand curtailment the past two years combined. That is an astounding amount of peak demand for one district. Judson ISD was assisted in achieving these savings by CPS Energy and their partner CLEAResult."
