October 2ndHudson Schools is setting the Pace for Environmental Excellence

The staff of the Hudson City School District are achieving outstanding savings with energy-efficient behavior - and now those good habits are earning national recognition. "Hudson City School District has done an excellent job of implementing Energy Education's organizational behavior-based approach to energy conservation and maintaining productive effort at all levels of the organization," says Dr. William S. Spears, Chairman and Founder of Energy Education. "I am extremely proud to present the District with our Environmental Excellence Award." Energy Education representatives will present the award at the Monday, October 8, 2012, Board of Education meeting.

Energy Education's Transformational Energy Management process helps organizations deliver an environmental benefit from a reduced carbon footprint. According to the EPA/EGrid figures, in the first 20 months of the program, Hudson City Schools saved 10,142 MMBTU, the equivalent of 1,225 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions being prevented, 220 cars removed from the road, or 31,338 pine trees grown for 10 years.

Chuck Schilling, Supervisor of Maintenance and Facilities, has the primary responsibility in the district for energy efficiency implementation and savings. In addition, Will Ersing, newly appoint to the position of energy specialist, will track energy consumption - including electricity, water, sewer, natural gas and fuel oil - using energy -accounting software. By tracking consumption and analyzing energy use, he can quickly identify and correct areas that need immediate attention.
