“In 2009, while School Superintendent of Putnam County Schools, we started an energy savings competition between schools, installed high-efficient lighting, and encouraged students to monitor light switches and plug loads resulting in utility savings over $1,000,000. EESI provided the financial mechanism that complimented our efforts to reduce utility cost, enabling us to allocate more money into our classroom learning environment.

- Dr. Kathleen Airhart,
Deputy Commissioner, Education


“ …EESI grants and loans were an awesome catalyst and springboard to help get more people on the energy conservation train. EESI funded the installation of a Building Logix system to provide real time meter data on all Murfreesboro City Schools. The system has given us the ability to rapidly discover and troubleshoot problems…and we can do an even better job. Thanks for your continued support and interest in Murfreesboro City Schools.”
