Willdan Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WLDN) announced today that Clark County School District – the fifth largest school district in the United States – has selected Willdan to design, implement, and maintain advanced lighting and controls upgrades. This $46 million energy savings contract focuses on energy efficiency projects and is expected to transform Nevada’s learning environment over the next 10 years.

Combined, these projects are expected to reduce the District’s energy costs by over $2 million and operational costs by more than $360,000 annually. Willdan will also lead ongoing student, faculty, and community engagement to promote awareness around energy efficiency, utility conservation, decarbonization, and the benefits of these approaches.

“These projects will benefit the local economy and some of the youngest Clark County residents,” said Mike Bieber, Willdan’s CEO. “We’ve prequalified local expertise to support the District’s scope. We’re excited to use these projects to showcase STEM in action and to help the community experience the benefits of energy-efficient technologies first-hand.”
