September 26 2023

Forty Katy Independent School District campuses have earned the Energy Star Certification by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Energy Star certified buildings are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide.

Katy ISD’s operations and campus teams continue to conserve energy through strategies that include fine-tuning air conditioning (AC) run times, identifying unused AC/lighting schedules, overnight equipment checks, updating technology and other protocols.  These energy efficient practices save the district approximately $2 million per year.

“Thanks to the community support of the bond projects, the Katy ISD Operations Division has been able to install new equipment that is both energy-efficient and more reliable for campuses and district facilities,” said Chief Operations Officer Ted Vierling. “Through future bond projects and component replacements, additional Katy ISD campuses and facilities will be evaluated and added to this prestigious list,” Vierling added.
