Daleville City Schools Maintenance Director Kenneth Mock received the Impact Performance Award from Schneider Electric representatives for his support and work to help provide energy savings to the Daleville City Schools system.

According to Daleville Sun-Courier archives, DCS partnered with the Energy Solutions division of TAC, the Building Automation Business Unit of Schneider Electric, to complete lighting and energy upgrades throughout the system in 2009.

The system completed $571,000 worth of facility enhancements in 2009 that were designed to improve operations, comfort and efficiency at all three schools, containing more than 216,000 square feet, according to Daleville Sun-Courier archives.

“Schneider Electric and Daleville City Schools have been partners for a very long time, going on 10 years,” Regional Client Coordinator Madalena Pierangelino said at the board’s April 17 meeting. “It’s been a pretty impactful partnership for both the school district in terms of the project and the impact it’s had on the savings and performance, and it’s also had a huge impact on the people, especially our team.”

At the time of the improvements in 2009, the company guaranteed a reduction in the system’s utility costs by $34,000 annually.

Since 2009, the system has saved around $500,000 in energy savings, according to Performance Assurance Team member Zac Burks, who recognized Mock as a key figure in the work to ensure that savings.

“We just want to acknowledge everything you’ve (Kenneth Mock) done for the project and what you’ve done for us as a company and acknowledge the hard work you’ve put in,” Burks said. “We appreciate the support and the partnership.”
