Energy Savings Performance Contract
Lighting Energy Use Reduction
Total Energy & Operational Savings over 15 Years
La Joya Independent School District is one of the larger school districts in Texas, and high school football is important within the community. The District knew that their athletic field lighting was approaching the end of its useful life, so selected Performance Services to develop and implement a comprehensive LED lighting project. The project meets the District's energy savings goals as well as showcases their "Friday Night Lights" with state of the art LED fixtures and lighting controls. The scope of the project includes athletic field LED lighting at five fields – La Joya High School football field, two baseball fields, and two softball fields. Additionally, the scope includes comprehensive interior and exterior LED lighting at campus school buildings. To improve lighting within the classrooms, dimmers will also be installed in classrooms, which will allow teachers to control illumination levels to optimize the learning environment. The project will provide $1,071,398 of guaranteed energy and operational savings each year for 15 years. The project reached substantial completion in September 2018.
La Joya also received an incentive check for $133,590 from the AEP Texas SCORE® Program for their high-efficiency LED lighting. The AEP Texas SCORE® Program is a no-cost program that provides technical and financial support to help schools identify and implement projects that reduce energy usage.
