Energy Conservation Program
The Campbell City Schools’ Board of Education received a check in the amount of $24,779.00 from FirstEnergy. The check was presented to Nora Montanez, Treasurer and Curt Brown, Maintenance Supervisor in recognition of the district’s valued participation and for committing to energy efficiency and peak demand reduction projects.
Frequently called the House Bill 264 Program, the Energy Conservation Program allows school districts to make energy efficiency improvements to their buildings and use the cost savings to pay for those improvements. The Energy Conservation Program gives districts the ability to borrow funds without having to pass a ballot issue for the authority to borrow. This limited borrowing authority has given districts the ability to save millions in utility bills and operating costs, and all at no additional taxpayer expense.
Mr. Matthew Bowen, Superintendent says, “As a good steward of our tax dollars, we seek opportunities to reduce operational costs so we can increase student educational opportunities.”
The check awarded from FirstEnergy was received after the completion of the HB264 guaranteed savings project. The District entered an agreement with Consolation Energy where lighting, heating, cooling enhancement has been made with an additional on-site installation of a diesel fuel tank for bussing.
Nora Montanez, Treasurer comments, “All such improvements dramatically save operational costs immediately and over future years.”
