The attached this is a release from Schneider Electric who partnered with Little Cypress-Mauriceville to help us cut energy usage. Representatives from Schneider Electric attended the October Board of Trustees meeting on Monday evening to present a $1,000 scholarship to the District. The following includes details of how much we have saved during the past several years with this program.

Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD entered into a public-private partnership with Schneider Electric in

2010 to leverage the District's energy budget to fund much-needed energy and infrastructure

upgrades designed to save money and improve the learning environment for its students. Notable

improvements include upgrading air handling units, installing an energy management system, and

retrofitting lighting.

During the performance period of the project it has generated over $687,400 in energy savings. The

project also helped to reduce Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD's energy usage by 46 percent. The

project has also created a sizable environmental impact on the local community by provided energy

efficiency savings equivalent to removing 911 cars from the road for one year, planting 1 ,238 acres of

new trees or removing 4,098 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

The project builds on Schneider Electric's expertise in delivering energy efficiency solutions in Texas,

having implemented more than 242 energy efficiency projects for over $383 million in total achieved

savings throughout the state. This project delivery method helps publicly funded entities make capital

improvements over longer payback periods and offers many long-term benefits such as improved

facility efficiency, occupant comfort, financial management and environmental protection.
