Project installation is under way! Similar to many districts across the country, Canutillo Independent School District (located 15 miles northwest of downtown El Paso, TX) is tasked with improving older facilities, managing increased utility costs, and planning for financial uncertainty. In order to address these areas, Canutillo ISD is partnering with Excel Energy Group, a turnkey, specialized lighting company, to ensure students have a “bright” future by investing into a new LED lighting system. Canutillo will pay zero out of pocket costs for this project, as the savings in energy and maintenance are contractually guaranteed by Excel to cover the cost of the project. The upgrade is expected to generate $211,432 in annual savings and $5.2 million in cumulative savings over the lifespan of the LED system. Go Canutillo!
