The single most expensive commodity purchased by the AISD is energy. It is our goal, in fact our charge, to consume energy as efficiently as is possible without creating a negative impact on the learning environment. We as a district can only succeed by involving all of the students, faculty, staff, and administration in our energy conservation efforts.
The Plant Services department is responsible for developing and implementing guidelines to manage our consumption of electricity, natural gas and water. A major tool is the computerized Energy Management System (EMS). This system permits us to monitor and control the air conditioning systems in the majority of the district's facilities.
It is not our intent to adversely affect the indoor environment or personal health of our customers. Use all the energy you need, but do not waste it. Remember, no reduction in energy use is too small to capture, so please when possible, turn off lights; close exterior doors and windows; turn off computers, printers, and office equipment when they are not needed; and report water leaks and dripping faucets to the Plant Services Department.
If you have any questions or ideas at any time, please contact the Energy Manager using the information at the top of the page.
