ECBOE Board Members and Schneider ElectricSchneider Electric is proud to present the $1,000,000 Savings Milestone Award to the Etowah County Schools Board of Education to recognize the district’s strides in energy conservation since the start of the project in 2015. In energy terms, this amounts to over 3,000,000 kWh saved. That’s enough energy to power 311 houses for an entire year.

The resulting energy efficiency project consisted of enhanced lighting in classrooms, hallways, gyms, and outdoor spaces, mechanical replacements at the central office, new building controls, and implemented Voice over Internet Protocol and IT enterprise management systems. These efforts cut the district’s energy consumption by 29% and reduced its utility budget by over $565,000 annually. Overall, the project allowed the district to improve facility operations and fund necessary upgrades without impacting local tax payers.
