Pinellas County Schools
Largo, Florida
Project Background
The Pinellas County School District,
situated midway up Florida’s west coast,
is the 23rd-largest school district in the
nation and the state’s seventh-largest.
Pinellas’ annual utility budget tops $26
million, and, as most of its counterparts
across the nation, faces many income and
expense dilemmas: how to reduce utility
consumption to help control the escalating
costs for electricity, gas, and water.
Strategies & Solutions
Energy Systems Group partnered with the
Pinellas County School District to provide a
unique, broad scope energy management
program that included comprehensive
energy audits, strategic implementation and
engagement of onsite Energy Coaches.
The ESG Energy Coaches team is comprised
of certified energy managers, certified air-
quality professionals, and brings extensive
background in public utilities. With an
office in the Pinellas Schools Institution
Services Center, the ESG Energy Coach
team educates and assists Pinellas site
staff in analyzing utility consumption
patterns and facility operational practices
to identify opportunities for reducing
consumption and cost while maintaining
and improving environmental conditions.
