TIPP CITY, Ohio /ScoopCloud/ -- North Central Local Schools' K-12 building is set to receive a dramatic upgrade in energy efficiency through a partnership with Energy Optimizers, USA, a move that is expected to save the district more than $50,000 annually.
Starting in July, Energy Optimizers, USA, will retrofit all interior and exterior lighting systems with LEDs, upgrade the district's building controls system, provide energy-efficient enhancements to kitchen equipment and water pumps, and replace the building's roof with a higher rated insulated material. The work also includes a biannual inspection and maintenance of HVAC equipment to ensure it is running in top condition.
"We know that the best use of taxpayer dollars is in our classrooms," said Superintendent William Hanak. "The savings we attain from this project will enable us to channel more dollars toward investments in technology and other tools that will prepare North Central students for the future."
The expected savings will come through reduced demand for fuel, electrical utilities, and maintenance. The most immediate gains will result from the switch to LED lighting, which uses an average of 60 percent less energy and lasts five times longer than the systems being replaced.
"Our clients are tasked with preparing their students for the 21st century with very limited budgets, which is why we deliver cost-effective, turnkey solutions to improve energy efficiency," said Greg Smith, Energy Optimizers, USA, president. "Our seamless approach enables our clients to operate more efficiently, all to the benefit of their students, staff, and taxpayers."
