CUSTOMER: Malvern School District

THE OPPORTUNITY

Located in Hot Spring County just 46 miles from Little Rock, the Malvern School District serves approximately 2,150 students and is committed to advancing education opportunities for each child within the district. To improve learning environments and reduce operating costs throughout the district, Malvern School District administrators partnered with the staff of Entergy Arkansas' CoolSaverSM program to identify cost-effective ways to improve energy efficiency.

THE PROJECT

The program team introduced Malvern School District staff to CoolSaver A/C Tune-ups, which help customers improve the efficiency of air conditioner units and heat pumps. These tune-ups are conducted according to rigorous program standards and include adjusting refrigerant charge to manufacturer specifications as well as cleaning evaporator coils, outdoor condensers and blowers. The CoolSaver team worked with Malvern School District staff to identify 123 eligible air conditioner units, engage a highly-qualified contractor to perform the tune-ups and assure the quality of the work performed.

THE RESULTS

As a result of its energy efficiency efforts, Malvern School District earned a $21,825 incentive from Entergy Arkansas' CoolSaver program. This incentive covered the cost of labor for the project, which enabled Malvern School District to reduce its annual energy consumption by 93,237 kilowatt-hours and cut its annual energy costs by more than $9,000.
