Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials (PASBO) Learns to View Energy as an Asset during Recent Conference
2015 conference aims to provide members with smart business practices


The Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials (PASBO) held its 2015 Facilities Management/Transportation Conference in Grantville, Pennsylvania October 29-30, 2015. Included among the attendees were facilities directors, facilities personnel (including custodian supervisors and head custodians), transportation directors, business managers and superintendents from across the commonwealth.

Representing WGL Energy Services, Inc. (WGL Energy) at the conference were Jack Ensor, Jaison Staab and Don Ottensman, who shared the benefits of a holistic, integrated energy management strategy with conference attendees. They outlined our vision of combining traditional energy and renewable resources with demand-side management – known as Distributed Impact – and how the implementation of a smart energy procurement and management strategy would yield cost savings that could be applied elsewhere in a customer’s organization.

“As organizational load grows, methods for finding savings

and hedging against rising utility costs

become more strategic.”


Don Ottensman was also the featured speaker of a well-attended breakout session, “Understanding Today’s Emerging Energy Options.” He showed conference attendees how to view energy as an asset, reminding them that “as organizational load grows, methods for finding savings and hedging against rising utility costs become more strategic.” He talked about the importance of managing energy spend, using data to better understand future energy use and leveraging cost-neutral renewable energy integration strategies.

For more perspectives on energy as an asset, please contact Don Ottensman at don.ottensman@wglenergy.com.
