It was recently brought to my attention the final total of our savings for the first 12 months of participating in the SEE program has not yet been posted. Well, we came so very close to the $200,000 mark, missing it by just $636. So if you did the math, our total avoided energy costs for 2010 were a savings of $199,364! WOW!!! Thank you to all the students and staff in the Prior Lake/Savage school district for getting on board with the SEE program and doing your part.
We had a goal of reducing our overall energy consumption by 10% and we not only met our goal, we doubled it and used 20% less energy in 2010 compared to our baseline figures.
Way to go everyone! It has been a team effort across the district and with almost 7,000 students and 900+ staff, all the energy conserving measures, no matter how small, have definitely added up to AWESOME SAVINGS!
