    Lexington City Schools Scores 2022 Cleantech Innovation Award

    Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster celebrated 2022 Cleantech Innovation Award Winners. Among those recognized was Lexington City Schools, for its guaranteed energy saving efforts. 

    The mission of the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster (RTCC) is to accelerate growth and leadership of the cleantech economy, leveraging the unique concentration of industry, academic, and government leaders in the Research Triangle to create benefits through innovation, deployment, and talent in the region, North Carolina, and beyond.

    Lexington City Schools utilized the Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract statute to create over $5 million in guaranteed energy efficiency savings throughout the next 19 years, including projects such as replacing the chillers, cooling towers, and boilers at schools across the district.

       

    Dr. Anitra Wells, Superintendent of Lexington City Schools, had a vision to implement this district-wide project with the curriculum. A district-wide volt patrol program is being implemented as a behavioral reward for students that teaches them energy saving strategies that they can also take home to their families. Additionally, Schneider Electric provided a solar picnic table for the high school courtyard to help students charge their devices.

    Here at LCS, our administrators, educators and personnel are committed to producing students destined to be leaders, collaborators, problem solvers, critical and innovative thinkers, and global citizens. 

    LCS is honored to be the recipient of such a prestigious award, which showcases the phenomenal works happening here in our community, and in our schools under Dr. Wells’ leadership.
