June 20, 2019
(DALLAS, June 20, 2019) — Cenergistic’s partnership with Northwest Florida State College (NWF State College) continues, following the College’s renewal of the Energy Conservation Program. Since the program’s inception in February 2014, $4.8 million in expected utility expenses were recaptured and energy consumption reduced by 55 percent.
Through the partnership with Cenergistic, NWF State College made significant gains in environmental stewardship initiatives. Greenhouse gas emissions were reduced, equivalent to energy used by average vehicles driving 66 million miles.
“Employees working closely with energy specialists have created an enormous amount of utility savings, which enables us to prioritize dollars on what matters most in higher education – student success,” said Dr. Devin Stephenson, NWF State College president. “Faculty, staff and students enjoy a comfortable environment to help them reach their full potential, and the conservation program instills a culture of sustainability within the college, saving millions for educational programing.”
Since 1986 Cenergistic has helped 1,400+ K-12 districts, institutions of higher education, governments and health care facilities find $5.4 billion and counting in hidden electricity, natural gas and water savings by applying our advanced software platform and sustainability-as-a-service solutions. Organization leaders can reduce utility spending by 20–30 percent annually with no capital investment while improving the comfort and quality of building environments.
