Energy Conservation Program

  • School District U-46 has entered into a five-year partnership with energy advisor Cenergistic designed to lead to lower energy costs for U-46.  As part of that effort, the District has two new Energy Specialists. They are Jacob Keene and Stephanie McDermott, who you can learn more about below. In the coming months, you will be seeing Jacob and Stephanie visiting buildings with their tablets, performing surveys as they work in collaboration with Rich Ramos, the District’s Coordinator of Facilities, and the Plant Operations team. Please feel free to introduce yourself to Jacob and Stephanie and ask them any energy-related questions.

    Below you can also find a simplified version of the new energy guidelines that the District will be following to help be successful with the new Energy Conservation program. To view (and download) the complete guidelines for the program, click here
