Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, today announced the California Energy Commission’s approval of the largest funded Proposition 39 allocation to date. Hacienda La Puente Unified School District, the 8th largest district in Los Angeles County representing over 20,000 students, received $5.3 million in approved funding as part of an energy savings performance contract (ESPC) to implement energy efficiency projects at the district’s four comprehensive high schools.
“In addition to simplifying the entire process, partnering with Schneider Electric allowed us to directly address our most pressing energy efficiency problems through an integrated approach,” said Annie Bui, Associate Superintendent of Business Services for Hacienda La Puente USD. “We now have a full 5-year energy savings plan that will help maximize every Prop 39 dollar.”
“Among the 1,000 plus school districts in California, we are one of the larger school districts, and one of only 47 districts with an approved Prop 39 plan,” added Gino Kwok, Board President of Hacienda La Puente USD. “We also take pride in knowing that these efficiency improvements will have a life-changing impact on our students, create new local jobs, and have a positive environmental impact. It’s a win-win-win for everyone in the community.”
