School district embarks on energy saving improvement project
School building management systems are but a few of the energy efficiency improvement measures planned by the South Brunswick School District (SBSD) from New Jersey in the United States.
The organization in the process of implementing energy-saving measures in all 14 of its buildings, which upon completion, is expected to save the district more than $1.4 million annually in energy costs.
The project includes 102 measures, encompassing various upgrades to the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in all district buildings. The measures were identified by an audit that determined the current energy use and the energy conservation measures that can be implemented to produce energy savings.
When completed, the upgrades are expected to save the district $1,467,245 annually in energy costs, with 49 percent of that savings from solar. The district will also receive $920,064 in energy incentives from the state. Prior to the upgrades, the district’s annual energy expense was $2,369,283, officials said.
Among the many benefits of South Brunswick School District’s project are improved air quality, comfort and lighting for students and staff; a reduction in the district’s carbon footprint; improved self-reliance through solar; self-funded upgrades; and guaranteed energy savings.
