The Toms River Regional school district will spend $717,535 on a program aimed at saving on energy costs district-wide, the Asbury Park Press reported this week.

The Toms River Regional district, the largest suburban school system in New Jersey, will spend the high six-figure outlay on salaries, software and fees, the Press reported, in order to save potentially millions of dollars in energy costs, district officials said.

In the last two years, the newspaper reported, the district saved about $1.2 million in such costs after a consultant's fee was paid. The consulting firm, Cenergistic, requires the district to hire an energy specialist to put a plan in place with the company's software and processes, according to the Press article.

The company is on the hook to Cenergistic for four years at $637,800 per year, the Press reported, but the savings is above and beyond the fee, and after the contract is up, the district can continue saving on energy without paying the consulting fees.
