(Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software (EIS), congratulates North Penn School District (NPSD) in Montgomery County, PA for winning a 2014 Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence. NPSD was recognized by Governor Tom Corbett for creating an energy management program that combines operational and behavioral changes, energy efficiency, demand response, and community engagement. The program launched in 2008 and in 2011, NPSD deployed EnerNOC's energy intelligence software to bring new levels of visibility to its energy management program. Using EnerNOC's software, creating a new culture, and instituting operational changes, the district has saved $2.5 million.
"Leadership at North Penn School District understands that with limited staff and resources you need to combine the power of software and real-time visibility into how energy is consumed and where it is being wasted in order to aggressively manage energy and put money back into the pockets of educators. We are proud that our software helped North Penn deliver impressive savings and earn this prestigious honor," said Gregg Dixon, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales at EnerNOC.
"By giving our staff and our students the tools they need to see the impact of their efforts, we've been able to inspire our community of people who are passionate about energy efficiency and conservation," said Thomas Schneider, Manger of Energy and Operational Efficiencies at North Penn School District. "This recognition from the state motivates us to keep up the strong momentum and we're thrilled to receive this honor."
The Governor's Awards for Environmental Excellence are presented each year by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to highlight the best in environmental innovation and expertise throughout the Commonwealth. The awards are the highest statewide honor bestowed upon businesses and organizations for environmental performance and innovation. Winners will be honored today at a celebration in Harrisburg.
