Frisco ISD is proud to announce the campus winners of an energy-saving competition designed to encourage staff and students to develop smart, conservation habits.
The Fall FISD 2017 Energy Reduction Competition began on September 1 ended on November 30, with a total savings of more than $168,700. This is the third energy contest in which FISD schools have participated.
The total electricity used for those three months was compared to September, October and November of 2016. The winning schools and other competing schools reduced electrical usage by 1,533,355 kilowatt hour (kWh). The competition was composed of seven different groups with 10 schools in each group.
The top three winners in each division received cash prizes, funded by savings from reduced electrical bills. The winners have been awarded prizes of $2,000 for first place, $1,500 for second place and $1,000 for third place.
