HPISD aims to save $1.7 million in energy costs over 5 years
Cenergistic seeks in-house Energy Specialist to lead program
The Highland Park ISD Board of Trustees entered into a five-year contract with Cenergistic, an energy conservation firm, May 20.

The goal of the agreement is to reduce energy consumption, allowing the district to devote the savings to its core mission of education. HPISD is not required to make any capital investment because the program is fully funded by savings. The net savings for HPISD are projected to be $1.7 million over the five-year contract.

Cenergistic is searching for an Energy Specialist to lead the conservation program. Cenergistic's ideal candidate is someone who is familiar with HPISD campuses and staff, such as a recent retiree, who can lead and encourage all staff members to reduce their energy usage. The position will be part time with approximately 30 hours per week. Cenergistic will train the Energy Specialist, so prior experience in the field is not necessary.

Candidates interested in making a difference for Highland Park ISD and its community through energy conservation are encouraged to attend an information session about the position at 3 p.m., Tuesday, June 3 in the 7/8 Assembly Room at Highland Park Middle School.
