Energy Conservation Program

  • Project Cost:
    $1,718,541
  • Projected Annual Energy Savings:
     $128,642

The project will address several Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) in the Middle, Intermediate, Primary, Elementary, and High Schools, as well as the Stadium including:

  • Boiler piping and control sequence upgrades to improve boiler system efficiency.
  • Building automation upgrades throughout the High School.
  • Lighting upgrades to include lamp/ballast upgrades, fixture replacements, and parking lot lighting at the stadium.
  • Mechanical upgrades to the kitchen exhaust and makeup to reduce outside air and address building pressurization issues. 
  • Installation of synchronous drives and variable speed drives on designated equipment.

Projected Annual Savings

  • 1,227,295  kWh of electricity
    $108,733
  • 3,209 MCF of natural gas
    $19,909
  • Operational savings
    $20,000

Along with the energy and cost savings for the building, the positive environmental impact of this project extends far beyond this community. Projected energy reductions by Green Local School District will prevent a significant amount of pollutants from being emitted into the atmosphere each year, including an estimated:

  • 1,816,766 lbs. of carbon dioxide
  • 19,638 lbs. of sulfur dioxide
  • 9,843 lbs. of nitrogen oxide

Combined, these projected energy savings are equivalent to taking 134.58 cars off the road.
