Energy & Water Conservation (Annual Data)

Energy and Water Conservation at SFPS - always a priority!

At SFPS, we believe that conservation and reducing our use is always the first step towards environmental stewardship. In an effort to track actual use of water, electricity, and natural gas, as well as generation of solar electricity, we built a use/cost database that includes every SFPS facility. This allows us to track use and cost over time, measure remodel or retrofit driven changes, prioritize projects, and forecast fiscal resources needed during our annual budget building each spring. Monthly, weekly, and even daily monitoring of building use allows us to more effectively identify areas of waste, preventative maintenance hot spots, water leaks, and facilities where retrofits or upgrades can have the most impact. 

We also strive to share this information with our stakeholders, so our Energy and Water Report Cards are uploaded periodically to this web page. If our campuses have solar photovoltaic generating capacity, a Solar PV graph is included for that campus, as well as a utility vs. solar PV graph, showing the monthly comparison of electrical demand and where it was sourced. In addition, the "All SFPS Locations" illustrates overall performance. We include individual campus and District average Energy Star scores, and we are working on calculating a Greenhouse Gas metric as well. The data is shown from the start of the Conservation Program, back in Summer of 2010.
