Ten Private Schools in Maryland Utilize Energy Strategy to Power Facilities

< 1 min read

The end of August is approaching quickly and back to school shopping is in full swing. As schools around the nation gear up for the new academic year, Roland Park Country School and the nine other private schools in Maryland recently agreed to receive electricity supply from Constellation NewEnergy for the next two years.

By engaging in a long-term energy strategy and locking in a competitive rate for electric supply for a two-year period, schools can focus on other aspects of operating facilities, including retrofitting and budgeting for technology upgrades and other maintenance related projects.

Since the start of the economic downturn, public and private k-12 schools, colleges and universities nationwide have operated under tight budgets. According to news sources, endowments have plummeted and private giving has dropped. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities also recently reported that annual state budgets will remain challenging throughout FY 2011. Given this information, k-12 schools, colleges and universities may want to consider cost management solutions, including managing energy costs through sustainable practices and energy efficiency.
