Staffing, supply chain issues and workplace changes are the challenges facing FMs
Energy bills were consuming 25 percent of the district's budget five years ago. To address this challenge, the department instituted an energy-conservation program and energy-infrastructure conversions focused on lighting-replacement projects. All T12 lamps were replaced with T8 or T5 lamps. Every gymnasium with mercury-halogen lights now has T5 instant on/off fixtures. Every incandescent bulb was replaced with an LED lamp. One lighting experiment involved converting the smallest school to LEDs. The project achieved a cost avoidance of 39.83 percent for one month. The district's total cost avoidance from the projects is about $1.3 million.
