Saving precious resources through more conscious use of energy also allows for money savings. Many school districts in Genesee County, based on their size, were able to independently secure support through an energy management consultation agreement. However, for those smaller districts that lack the volume required to enter into an independent contract, a new and creative approach was implemented. The Genesee County Energy Consortium is a partnership of eight school districts that collectively share the knowledge, expertise, and benefits that are the hallmarks of a successful collaboration. This consortium emphasizes educational approaches to changing individual behavior that results in good stewardship of energy resources. The success of the consortium was recently noted when it received the Energy Excellence Award for realizing over $1 million dollars in savings for its consortium members.
Services available to units of government include consultation to determine needs, opportunities, and next steps.
