San Angelo ISD has partnered with Schneider Electric since January 2020, when it began
work on a comprehensive infrastructure improvement project. This project focused o
replacing aging infrastructure and increasing the efficiency of the district’s Glenn and Lincoln
middle school buildings.

In recent years, San Angelo ISD has been challenged by aging infrastructure in its facilities.
Through this project, the district was able to tackle its critical infrastructure issues without
bond issue or tax increase for the San Angelo community. This project helped the district
save on energy and maintenance expenses, while simultaneously streamlining district
operations and enhancing the student experience and classroom learning environment.
Improvements across the district’s middle school buildings included:

● Upgraded heating and cooling systems that are designed to improve occupant
comfort, energy efficiency, and system reliability.
● Updated Building Automation System (BAS) that will provide scheduling of HVAC
equipment to match occupant schedules as well as optimize energy efficiency and
improve occupant comfort.
