SCORE Program
Program Overview

The SCORE program provides complimentary support to participating K-12 schools, private schools, higher education, places of worship, and non-profits through a combination of tools and services, described below, for participants who complete projects resulting in a reduction of energy use. The SCORE program is designed to help schools identify energy efficiency opportunities in existing and newly planned facilities and provide monetary incentives to implement these projects. Beginning in 2015, the SCORE program is also available to places of worship, non-profits, museums, and cultural centers. The program is funded by CenterPoint Energy Houston Electric and is offered at no cost to participants. SCORE is a voluntary program that offers objective, third-party consulting on best practices in the areas of energy usage and energy efficiency. Please note that no products or services are sold through the SCORE program. CenterPoint Energy Houston Electric partners with CLEAResult to implement the program.
