The Mission of the Campus Energy Education Program is to provide substantial savings on energy costs to the Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District, resulting in more funds for educational purposes and a positive environmental impact.
Welcome to the CFISD Campus Energy Education Program (CEEP) webpage. Please take some time to explore what the Cy Fair Independent School District is doing to reduce energy consumption. Working together, we can make a difference.

The program’s focus is to create a customized conservation plan for each building, followed by continuous audits and refinements for maximum efficiency.
Energy savings are guaranteed to more than pay for this self-funding program. Energy costs include electricity, water and gas.
The program does not compromise teaching and learning or safety. Teachers, students, custodians, principals and maintenance crews all play a critical role in the success of our program.
Savings are realized in two ways: through changing human behavior, such as turning off lights and computer monitors when not in use, and by making changes in system facilities management, such as reduction in equipment run times.
This program was piloted at seven of our campuses in 2013 and was successful in saving over 500,000kWh (kilowatt hours) – a unit for measuring energy consumption. Based on these results, we anticipate more than $500,000 in savings per year if employees from all campuses and facilities support this program. The Energy Management Department will play a vital role implementing this program and are dedicated to its success.
Kathryn Tubbs (Lowery): “At Lowery, our Watt Watchers do patrols during their independent reading time. This ensures that we are checking the school at many different points during the day. The Watt Watchers sign up for a day of the week to patrol and the areas they patrol change every week, they said they wanted variety! We have between 4-6 patrols done each day at variety of time this way
Carla Butler (McFee): “The students have really bought into the job and the teachers are doing a much better job of turning off their lights when they leave the room.
In the training I showed the students how teachers could use the double switches to dim the classroom lights as a way to conserve energy. I told them that we would begin the process by conducting the surveys with the current survey and cards now, but would expand options for noticing ways teachers are conserving energy: turning off computers, using the dimmer switch option or raising the blinds and using the natural light as a light source.
We will also work together to find a way to reward teachers who are conserving energy, as well”
Pheme Woods (Postma): “My watt watchers go on patrol during recess every Wednesday and independent reading time every Friday. They are very serious about it and they are loving it”!
Jennifer Rosenquist (Danish): “Our Watt Watchers are doing an awesome job and they are so excited when they go on their patrols! It's been a joy to watch them take on this responsibility”
Jessica Jahn (Horne): “They are absolutely loving making their patrols and helping us conserve energy”!
Ana Hernandez (Reed): “Today I trained Reed’s Watt Watchers!! Yay!! They were so excited!”
Kristin Paulsen (Robinson): “Our kids have been so excited about their patrols. They can’t wait to find more ways to save energy on our campus”
Lisa Gray (Lamkin): “We had our first official WW training meeting today. The students were so excited about it, that they wanted to wear the WW badges for the rest of the day, and take them home to show their parents. So fun!”
