MVSD receives the Energy Excellence Award from Cenergistic!
Congratulations Mountain View School District for surpassing $1 million in energy savings. The Energy Excellence Award is for Cenergistic clients who have reached a significant savings milestone, generally $1 million, or more. The award celebrates a solid, sustainable conservation program and the support and cooperation of administration, faculty, and staff.
Additionally, each MVSD building received ENERGY STAR Certification for 2015. This is tremendous and a true testament to the hard work of the faculty, staff and the entire district.
Great job everyone!

Conserve our precious resource...
Tips for your home...Tankless water heaters allow users to shave 20 percent off their water bill. In addition to lasting five to 10 years longer than tank heaters, tankless heaters never run out of hot water. Plus, you get a federal tax rebate if you purchase one, according to Energy Star. @MVSDEnergy
