Pittsburg USD 250

About the Project

Prior to selecting appropriate energy conservation measures for Pittsburg USD 250, administrators relied on Trane to conduct a formal energy audit and building assessment.  Based on the findings, administrators selected the energy conservation measures that best met the district’s needs for improved energy and operational efficiency.

Energy savings will be realized along with reducing the amount of money the district spends maintaining old equipment that’s past its useful life.

With the new, energy-efficient upgrades, the district is expected to save approximately $345,000 annually in energy and operations & maintenance expenses.

In addition to energy savings, Trane’s public private partnership with the District will provide educational programming for students in alignment with STEM, KansansCan, and Foresight 2020 priorities.

District students will engage in project-based learning units utilizing data analytics from District facilities. These relevant lessons will prepare students for high-demand, high-wage, and community supporting 21st century technical careers.

In April, four new HVAC units were installed at PHS. This was step one of the recently passed bond proposal. Video credit: Zach Fletcher, Public Information Director, Pittsburg Community Schools
