NC Schools Save $687,000 on Energy

The Cabarrus County Schools in Concord, NC, hired Educon – Educational Consulting in 2012 to help several of its schools reduce energy costs. Since implementing Educon’s program, the schools have saved about $687,000 in energy expenses over the past two years – about 10 percent of the school system’s energy budget, reports The Charlotte Observer.

Educon used energy management software Energy Master Pro to automate HVAC systems. Energy Master Pro, which was developed for use in public schools, enables users to track utility usage and costs.

In addition to saving energy, Educon’s program helped several of the participating schools earn Energy Star recognition from the EPA, according to the newspaper.
