RCSD Energy Management

Recpients Schools of the 2018 Energy Star designation
  • We are excited to announce that 25 of our 28 schools have received the Energy Star designation!

    An ENERGY STAR facility meets strict performance standards set by the EPA and uses less energy, is less expensive to operate and causes fewer greenhouse gas emissions than its peers. To qualify for the ENERGY STAR, a building must score in the top 25 percent based on EPA's National Energy Performance Rating System and be certified by a Professional Engineer. Brett Rasmussen, Utilities Engineer with Nissan, acted as a mentor for the schools and completed the certification process.

    This past year, 2016-2017, the Rankin County School District achieved a cost avoidance of $400,225.00 with a total of over 3.9 million dollars since the Energy Management Program started in 2006. Mr. Rusty Ponder oversees this program for our district.
