Industry Landscape About Bibb County School District www.wiproecoenergy.com A FIRM FOUNDATION IN ENERGY SAVINGS FOR BIBB COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT Delivered nearly half a Million dollars in savings in 9 months K-12 school districts in US spend almost 6 Billion annually on energy – more than is actually spent on computers and textbooks. ENERGY STAR® resources say that around 30 of the district’s energy is either used inefciently or unnecessarily. Moreover energy costs are the largest operating expense for any school district after salaries and benets. However energy is one of the few expenses that can be decreased without negatively affecting classroom instructions. By measuring energy use setting goals and tracking energy changes schools can actually gain control of energy expenses. Energy improvements could also help free up resources to upgrade the enhancement of a student’s learning experience viz. infrastructure developments promotion of educational standards etc. by spending less on utility bills providing schools with greater incentives to become more energy efcient. The Bibb County School District ‘BCSD’ located in Macon GA serves approximately 25000 students in its twenty ve elementary seven middle and seven high schools – a total of 39 schools. These numbers include three elementary one middle school and four high school magnet programs as well as one high school offering career training opportunities. Meanwhile the district is also committed to expanding its school choice based upon student interests talent and future needs. BCSD is one of Georgia’s original 26 Race to the Top RT3 partner school districts. Fact Sheet Energy Management Program OBJECTIVE • Studying BCSD’s Lighting Energy usage Effectiveness • Measuring Monitoring Controlling Energy Consumption • Maximizing the Effciency of the Districts Energy Consumption and Operating Costs • Unifed View of Energy Performance Data Across BCSD School Buildings Wipro EcoEnergy has been a great partner to Bibb County School District and exceeded our expectations in the execution of the project. Their processes and procedures helped the district get the best value out of the project.

The Engagement Benets To BCSD IND/BRD/AUG 2013-OCT 2014 During Bibb County’s FY 2011 budget the committee members planned to execute a comprehensive energy audit on all county owned properties. The results of which would allow Bibb County to move forward with recommenda- tions in order to conserve energy reduce demands and ultimately increase savings. At the same time BCSD recognized the growth of technology and the need for a real time energy monitoring of its school’s energy performance for efcient operations.
