Did you know that Texas Charter Schools Association (TCSA) created an energy cooperative that has saved charter schools more than $1 million since 2011? Savings for all current contract holders in 2017 amount to nearly $300,000! In 2016, Arlington Classics Academy used the program to reduce their energy costs by $19,000 annually and $57,000 over the life of their new contract. A+ Charter Schools are currently saving over $24,000 annually and $72,500 over the life of their contract.
TCSA, in partnership with Van Brunt & Associates, developed a charter-specific request for proposal (RFP) process, which includes:
