total energy and operational savings.

Welcome Message


We have endorsed the “Why not choose Whiting” theme as we compete for students throughout our area. In order to actively compete it is essential we provide our students with an outstanding learning environment. Through the efforts of Whiting’s Board, staff and Energy Systems Group (ESG) we are implementing  an energy asset modernization project that will be completed before the end of the 2012 calendar year. 


This project will not only improve comfort and increase lighting levels but substantially reduce our energy costs to free up our budgets for educational purposes. To go one step further ESG has accepted the risk for the project by guaranteeing the performance of these energy consuming assets.
