TIPP CITY, Ohio, Dec. 1, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Trimble Local Schools will soon see a substantial savings in its monthly utility bills following an agreement with Energy Optimizers, USA, to overhaul all lighting and improve the district’s HVAC controls.
Energy Optimizers, USA, will replace existing lighting with energy-efficient LEDs, install occupancy sensors to reduce wasted electricity and make upgrades to the HVAC systems and controls.
The estimated $787,000 project is part of a 10-year energy service agreement that is expected to reduce the district’s utility costs from $290,000 annually to $74,244 annually. The district will use the savings gained through its improved energy efficiency to pay for the project over a 10-year period. The savings are guaranteed by Energy Optimizers, USA.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for our district to save costs while improving the learning environment,” said Superintendent Scott Christman. “We will be able to make advanced upgrades to our classrooms that will improve the quality of lighting without having to divert capital from other projects. This is a win-win for our students and our taxpayers.”
LED lighting uses an average of 60 percent less energy than the systems being replaced. Occupancy controls will further cut costs by reducing wasted electricity. The district will also save on hidden costs related to maintenance and warranty. LEDs can last up to 20 years, which translates into a measurable reduction in costs related to maintenance and equipment. Energy Optimizers, USA will service all retrofitted lighting systems for the life of the agreement, further saving the district time and money.
“Our goal is to make it easy and cost-effective for our clients to reduce their operating costs, conserve energy and improve their facilities,” said Rusty Bookman, account executive for Energy Optimizers, USA. “Our lighting service agreements make it possible to immediately benefit from better lighting technology – and reduced installation and maintenance costs – without a cost to taxpayers.”
