NextEra Energy Solutions Launches $7.5 Million Renovation Project In Mt. Pleasant Independent School District

Stocks in this article: NEE

As part of the QZAB process, NextEra committed to make an in-kind contribution of products and services equal to 10 percent of the overall project cost. This included two 10-kW solar arrays that not only produce electricity, but also provide a teaching platform to support STEM curricula. Real-time information about the solar panels and their savings profile is available through all the district's computers and is used for classes on sustainable energy production and other topics.

The work at Mt. Pleasant ISD encompassed over 20 buildings, including elementary, middle and high schools as well as special education, administration, warehouse, and sports facilities. The total savings result from lower energy costs, reduced maintenance expense, and capital cost avoidance over 15 years. 

The renovation program also delivered other tangible benefits besides energy conservation and reduced maintenance costs for older equipment. The addition of high-efficiency HVAC units markedly improved environmental conditions while saving energy. Students and staff throughout the district now enjoy brighter, more consistent and uniform light levels in all buildings that were upgraded. Energy efficient floodlights, which will improve security and safety in outdoor areas of school facilities, were added as part of the project. A building automation system was also installed, enabling central control of the district buildings. 

"The improvements and savings at almost every facility in the District are remarkable, and more important, measurable," said Mt. Pleasant District Superintendent Dr. Lynn Dehart. "A renovation of this magnitude would not have been possible without the expertise of NextEra Energy Solutions and the close working relationship we created."
