In one year, the New Richmond Exempted Village School District saved more than $180,000 on energy costs through an energy conservation program. As part of the program, a team of students built the school district an energy bike to be as a learning tool on energy education throughout the district.

The savings are credited to an energy conservation program the school district enrolled in at the start of the 2013 school year.

Back in early 2013, the school district started a partnership with an energy conservation and management program called Energy Optimizers, USA, along with strategic partner SHP Leading Design.

Superintendent Adam Bird said the company’s job was to improve five existing schools, reduce overall energy usage and save taxpayer dollars.

“In an age of declining revenue and resources, the ability to reduce our operational expenditures through greater energy efficiency is tremendously important for the fiscal health of the school district,” Bird said in a press release. “Energy Optimizers, USA, and SHP Leading Design have enabled us to save dollars that can be redirected into the classrooms for quality instruction for our students.”
