Energy Conservation

Puyallup School District is working to address complex school infrastructure upgrades, sustainability, energy management goals, and compliance with the Washington State Clean Buildings Performance Standard (CBPS)

Most districts have been historically underfunded, and when communities face funding challenges, choices are made to keep dollars in the classroom, cuts are made to maintenance and operations, and capital replacement programs, which causes a backlog of deferred maintenance.  External factors have also increased concerns about student safety and equity, causing more focus on security and student and staff wellness related to indoor air quality. And as school buildings age and buildings systems become less efficient, many districts see consistently rising utility costs.

Over the next few years, PSD will focus on three areas of improvement:

  • Operational Improvements
  • Performance tracking and reporting improvements
  • School community energy-use best practices and education
