• Energy Management Program Details

    Duncanville ISD is committed to making every dollar count. By keeping operating costs down, we are able to provide a safe and comfortable environment for learning while reducing wasted energy and conserving natural resources. As an energy-efficient school district, we are not only helping the environment, but also have the ability to redirect district funds back into our classrooms.

    We have partnered with Cenergistic, the nation’s leader and pioneer in developing comprehensive and sustainable organizational behavior-based energy conservation programs. Cenergistic works with organizations to reduce their consumption of electricity, natural gas, fuel oil and water. They also help their clients build an action plan based on the findings from an in-depth, onsite assessment.

    Our energy management program is not a short-term “go green” plan. It is a comprehensive, rigorous and sustainable energy program designed to help the district save money for years to come. The program does not require us to increase our utility budget, purchase new energy equipment or upgrade our existing equipment. It is financially risk-free.
