St. Johns County School District
St. Augustine, Florida
St. Johns County School District, located in St. Augustine, Florida, encompasses more than 4,500,000 square feet of floor space and educates 30,000 students each year. The District’s mission is to inspire good character and a passion for lifelong learning in all students, creating educated and caring contributors to the world. St. Johns County School District began an energy management program in September 2008 with assistance from Energy Education, Inc. All district employees, along with the superintendent and school board members, have been fully committed to the success of the program.
St. Johns County School District has been recognized by EPA as an ENERGY STAR Leader for improving its district-wide energy efficiency by more than 30 percent compared to a 2008 baseline and as a Top Performer for achieving and average ENERGY STAR energy performance score of 87 across its portfolio of buildings. Participants in the district’s energy efficiency program have lowered annual carbon dioxide emissions by more than 14,800 metric tons, which is equivalent to the carbon sequestered by more than 379,000 tree seedlings planted and grown for 10 years. Since January 2009, the district has avoided more than $10,000,000 in energy costs. These achievements are largely attributed to behavioral changes made by students, faculty, and staff members. Teachers and staff members have been instrumental in ensuring that lights, computers, and other electronics are turned off. Custodial staff members serve as the “last line of defense” for wasted energy, turning off unnecessary lights and equipment and implementing cleaning practices that reduce the need for additional lighting when the building is unoccupied. The principals of each school are accountable for the consumption of their buildings, and an on-site building manager helps ensure the energy management system is operating as intended and as needed. As a result, very few equipment upgrades have been necessary.
