Austin Independent School District (AISD) is an urban public school system with 104 campuses and more than 20 support buildings in Central Texas. AISD is committed to purchasing a portion of its total electricity use from green power, and is currently purchasing over 60 million kilowatt-hours per year. The school district's main driver behind its commitment is to reduce power plant pollutants and be recognized as a "good citizen". Additionally, the school district believes it is advantageous to lock in a fixed price for its energy expenditures.
