In December 2007, the Granbury ISD Board of Trustees established a goal to reduce annual energy consumption by five percent each fiscal year for six years. The commitment to conserve energy and natural resources will build on the district’s energy policy that was first established in 1995. The energy plan includes: energy-efficient lighting systems, automated HVAC controls, evaluation of after-hours scheduling of events, evaluation of utility bills, energy-efficient appliance purchases, vending machine operating controls, and continued use of water wells for irrigation.
Recent state legislation requires school districts to execute plans to reduce energy usage. With several awards for energy management, GISD already has implemented all the required actions mandated by the new state law.
