Energy Savings at what cost?

No black mold will be growing, nor will band instruments warp. Cutting the cost of the utility bills is cutting out energy waste. Often times this can be done simply by reprogramming thermostats and already automated heating and cooling systems or utilizing one water heating system at 140 degrees for the lunchroom/kitchen and turning down the heat to 120 degrees on the back up system used for the bathrooms. Another way to save on energy costs is to take a look at your utility bill to see what program you have and what rate you are paying. For a large company, owning your own transformers saves quite a bit every month.

People don't realize how much energy is wasted by lights in the class room being left on when no one is in the room. Nor do they realize how redundant some convenience appliances are, like keeping personal microwaves and small refrigerators in private offices, instead of using the microwave in the break room, etc...

Further, this company doesn't get paid up front, they take a percentage of the money they help the school system save and they don't take it without absolute proof of savings which show up in the utility bills every month like clockwork.
