Shippensburg Area School District: Energy Conservation Success Story

Background Shippensburg Area School District (SASD) is a mid-sized, suburban school district that straddles Franklin and Cumberland Counties in the rolling hills of south-central Pennsylvania. Encompassing approximately 129 square miles, it serves approximately 3,200 students in grades K-12. Today, the district’s six buildings’ operating systems hum with efficiency and SASD is the poster child for energy conservation program success. But that wasn’t the case almost a decade ago. In 2010, bogged down by supersized utility bills and inefficient energy practices, the district sought to enact a guaranteed energy savings project to bring their energy costs under control. Their goals were to minimize the effects of the impending electrical deregulation by substantially reducing electrical usage, improve systems efficiency district-wide, extend the life of their existing infrastructure, and implement a comprehensive energy project. Under Reynolds Energy Services’ guidance, the district implemented a conservation program, but just as importantly educated faculty, staff, and students on the value and benefit of energy conservation efforts for long-term success and sustainability. Project Overview Working with the school board and administration, Reynolds developed and constructed a guaranteed energy savings project at all district buildings, which included the high school, middle school, intermediate school, two elementary schools, and […]

Five Ways to Reduce Your Organization’s Carbon Footprint

Tips for Reducing Environmental Impact Organizations regionally, nationally, and globally are reducing their environmental impact by decreasing waste; switching to renewable energy sources; and becoming more eco-responsible in their respective industries. Companies in the food and beverage and travel and tourism industries, for example, are pledging to ditch plastic straws or switch to 100% bio-degradable materials for serveware and drink ware. Grocers across the country are making the commitment to phase out plastic bags and asking customers to bring reusable totes and bags for their groceries. Some organizations have completely moved to 100% renewable energy to power their facilities. Ways to Reduce Environmental Impact in Construction The construction and building industry is no different, making strategic and thoughtful changes to building practices to help reduce the impact new construction and renovation has on the environment. Organizations such as the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) have committed to helping transform how buildings are designed and constructed by benchmarking energy usage and developing the green building rating system LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), creating incentives for organizations to build eco-friendly structures. Reynolds, a leader in sustainable commercial building practices and a certified energy services company, works with owners in industries […]
