Klein ISD Saves 90 Percent on Lighting Costs Through Energy-Conservation Grant

Klein ISD Saves 90 Percent on Lighting Costs Through Energy-Conservation Grant

The State Energy Conservation Office awarded Klein ISD’s Energy Management Department a $50,000 grant to modernize exterior lighting at Klein High School and Klein Memorial Stadium.

The project allowed Klein ISD to replace 42,000 watts of overhead lighting with high-efficiency LEDs totaling 4,087 watts. A more than 90 percent reduction in costs.

The project was also submitted to Centerpoint Energy as a SCORE (Schools Conserving Resources) project, which awards school districts for installing and upgrading to more energy-efficient equipment. As a result of the SCORE application, CenterPoint awarded Klein ISD more than additional $9,000 for this particular project.  

The remainder of the lighting upgrade was funded through incentives previously received by KIein ISD Energy Management for participation in various energy-savings programs. The project will pay for itself in about four years, but the savings are long-term as LED lights not only use less electricity but also have a much longer lifespan and require less maintenance.  

The next time you attend an evening event at Klein High or Klein Memorial Stadium, take a minute to look up and know that Klein ISD is continuing its efforts to conserve both natural and financial resources.
