• Mission Statement:

    The Department of Energy is committed to systematically control and reduce the cost of utilities; project future utility costs and select better rates within electric service providers (ESP) in deregulated markets; and plan for replacement of inefficient equipment including building automation control systems.

    Department Goals:

    The Department of Energy is dedicated to the efficiency of energy use in the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District. This is primarily accomplished by using our automated control system. By monitoring the automated control system, labor requirements are reduced and prompt responses to problems are facilitated. Building utility is tracked and discrepancies are investigated to maximize the reduction in energy consumption, utility, and fuel costs without sacrificing human comfort and safety.

    The responsibilities of the Department of Energy are to:
    Work toward achieving a cost avoidance on energy usage
    Focus on cost effective operations and on timely support to schools
    Effectively identify inefficient equipment and acquire with high-energy- efficient ratio (EER) replacements
    Effectively control utility waste
    Plan and forecast future consumption of utilities
    Keep abreast of all innovations that can reduce energy usage in schools
    Work with building principals and committees to determine ways to reduce energy consumption
    Make changes to school cooling plants that will reduce the use of energy
    Keep track of District energy consumption
    Communicate total cost avoidance to staff and the public
