KISD receives more than $1.1 million in energy savings rewards

Posted

Katy ISD announced Monday morning that it has received more than $1.1 million in funding for taking action to save energy throughout its facilities through the CenterPoint Energy Schools Conserving Resources and Energy Program. Its most recent rebate check was more than $450,000, the announcement said.

“A portion of these funds are reinvested into the energy program, while the majority goes to the general operating fund (GOF) which supports students and teachers,” said Katy ISD Chief of Operations Ted Vierling.

CenterPoint’s SCORE program began in 2006 and incentivizes K-12 schools to reduce electricity demand and consumption through energy efficiency projects and equipment upgrades. As those items are implemented or installed, CenterPoint provides rebate checks reflecting the respective district’s energy savings strategies.

“In addition to this program, Katy ISD will pursue Energy Star Certifications for our schools in 2021,” Vierling said.
