Energy Management is a top priority of the Beaverton School District, and the first step in a good Energy Management Program is to make a commitment. Here at the BSD, commitment is reflected in our Energy Conservation Policy, and in our Administrative Regulations that support the action behind the policy.
Beaverton students are learning about energy; where it comes from, how it's made, why it's important, and how we can conserve it. Education is the first step to spreading awareness about this key resource! Not only can we save resources and create less pollution, but we can save dollars for the District's already tight budget.
District-Wide Energy and Resource Report
Monthly School Electricity Target Reports
*IMPORTANT NOTICE (3/16/18)* We have some good news and bad news. Bad news first. Our Energy Expert program no longer allows E&RC to post Monthly School Energy Target Reports as we have traditionally prepared and posted below. However, the good news is that an entire new monthly reporting format is currently being developed and will be available in the next few months. The new report format will provide a similar graphical layout that is popular but enhanced with even more monthly statistics. The report will also be much easier for our department to prepare making posts timelier. We see it as a win-win for energy! Please stay tuned!
Blue 'Low' = Your energy consumption is less than your expected (target) consumption by more than 10%.
Green 'OK' = Your energy consumption is within 10%, plus or minus, of your expected (target) consumption.
Red 'High' = Your energy consumption exceeds your expected (target) consumption by more than 10%.
Reports will now be available here at the end of every month.
December 2017 School Target Reports
Elementary Schools - Aloha-Huber to Findley
Elementary Schools - Fir Grove to Oak Hills
Elementary Schools - Raleigh Hills to William Walker
These reports are powered by our Energy Expert program where we monitor our electricity in real-time. Since we can "see" our electricity use in 15-minute intervals, and can tell if our schools are, for example, shutting down correctly at night and over the weekends. The Beaverton School District community is invited to review their school's interval metering data and reporting tools. Contact Matt Lichtenfels (503-356-4570) for account access.
Energy Star Certification
Did you know that school buildings can get an Energy Star rating just like your refrigerator?
Thirty-one (31) of our schools have earned this rating--the most of any school district in Oregon!
We were also been named 'Energy Star Top Performer' in two categories: reducing total energy consumption by more than 10% , and earning an average Energy Star score of 90 out of 100 (i.e., BSD’s energy performance is among the top 11% of all school districts in the country).
