Energy Consumption and Savings

DBS Energy Consultants: 

"During the past ten (10) years, the Stratford Board of Education has developed a comprehensive strategy of proactively managing, procuring, and reducing energy consumption within its schools.  These initiatives have taken advantage of:  1) industry expertise; 20 grants from The United Illuminating Company; 3) grants from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, and 4) grants from the U.S. Department of Energy to invest in energy conservation and renewable energy systems within our schools to proactively reduce energy consumption and energy costs during a period of rising electricity and fossil fuel prices. 

To date, the Stratford Board of Education has realized in excess of $5.2 million in avoided energy expenditures from energy conservation and competitive procurement measures.  These measures are expected to save taxpayers an additional $11.4 million over their remaining useful lives".
