Energy Management and Conservation Program
The Davidson County Board of Education encourages and supports an energy conservation and education program to substantially lower consumption of electricity, natural gas, propane, gasoline, and water.
The Energy Manager for Davidson County Schools is responsible for operating the Building Automation System (BAS) that schedules Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning equipment throughout the district. The Energy Manager monitors all utility invoices and uses the information to analyze energy use and costs for 36 schools and 3 support facilities within the district.
Routine visits are made of all buildings at night, on weekends, and during the holidays to insure they are in compliance with the DCS Board of Education’s Energy Policy and Guidelines.
The goal of the Energy Manager is to save the Davidson County School District money by lowering the unnecessary usage of utilities. Increasing energy conservation methods is achieved by conducting multiple audits and analyzing the data throughout the year of the 36 schools and also by running Building Automation System (BAS) controls to verify the buildings are operating as efficient as possible.
The Custodial Supervisor's role is to consult and establish relationships with the school based custodians to ensure facilities are being cleaned and maintained in order to maintain a safe learning/working environment.
The goal of the Integrated Pest Management Coordinator (IPM) is to ensure DCS is in compliance with the State regulations in the use of pesticides and works with our Pest Control Contractors verifying that all school sites are safe from pests.
