Entegrity finds energy and conservation opportunities with guaranteed savings. The goal for the company is to provide the district with not only savings in energy but yearly maintenance expenses well into the future. Some examples of cost savings can be found in lighting as well as alternate energy sources, insulation and flooring to present the best solutions.

The Board discussed the possibility of the significant savings Entegrity will offer and agreed to enter a contract with Entegrity to explore energy cost savings in new construction. Following a cost analysis, Entegrity will share findings on upfront cost versus long term savings.

Total funds exceeding the $1.5 million budget will be placed into the building fund for construction, repairs, equipment and other supplies.
