Controls and Energy Management at MCPSS

Logo

The Controls and Energy Management Department utilizes expertise, synergies with partners, and the latest technologies in building automation to reduce energy waste and foster a culture of sustainability while ensuring a safe, comfortable environment for the administrators and students. This is achieved by managing over 50,000 data points district-wide, such as temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, fresh air flow, building occupancy, and HVAC runtimes.

Over a short time, the department has been able to provide the schools millions of dollars in utility cost avoidance. Below is a chart to shows the savings and successes the Controls and Energy Management Department continues to make for Mobile County Public Schools.
