Since 2013, Pekin Community High School has been working with SEDAC to save energy and money. Measures implemented from a 2013 retro-commissioning study were projected to save the district $44,000 annually on energy bills. Five years later, the school district reached out to SEDAC again for an energy assessment. Measures recommended by SEDAC have the potential to save the district an additional $36,000 annually.
“Both experiences working with SEDAC were very helpful. They were willing to look into areas we knew we wanted to work on, as well as areas we hadn’t considered,” says Tim Bonnette, Director of Buildings and Grounds.
The district is already working to implement some of SEDAC’s latest recommendations. “We’re open to anything that will make the learning environment better for our teachers and students and that will lower costs for our school district,” says Tim. He plans to receive another assessment in another 5 years to review progress and set new goals.
