Energy Conservation Program
Over the past four years district energy specialist Vanessa Paccione has established an energy conservation program in correlation with Cenergistic, a leading nationwide energy conservation company in order to reduce the Swedesboro-Woolwich School District’s overall energy costs and reduce its carbon footprint. Through these efforts the district has been awarded Cenergistic’s Stewardship Award which recognizes the district’s positive impact on the environment, decreased carbon emissions and the conservation of natural resources. Currently, the district has saved over $550,000 in energy reduction costs and prevented 843 metric tons of C02 gases from being emitted into the environment! This equates to removing 176 passenger cars off the road this year and planting over 21,000 tree seedlings with ten years of growth!
