PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Perrysburg school district found a way to upgrade its entire energy system
without asking residents to approve a levy to pay for them.
upgrade will cost $4 million, but it won't cost taxpayers anything. Ohio House
Bill 264 allows school districts to borrow money from a bank to make
improvements. The district is taking out a $4 million loan, to be paid back
over a 15-year period.
payment for that will be made from the energy savings we will realize,"
explained Aura Norris, from the district's Human Resources and Operations
district expects to save $300,000 annually on energy costs.
company that is doing the project is guaranteeing that our savings will be that
much," Norris said. "If they're not, they'll write us a check."
the indoor and outdoor lighting will be replaced. Some will include on/off
sensors. A new water conservation system will be installed for drinking
fountains and toilets, and in the cafeteria, new kitchen hoods will be
installed and moderated by temperature.
big thing is an emergency management system, which will enable our heating and
air conditioning system to be regulated by computers," Norris said.
upgrades begin this month and will be finished in 6-9 months.
