Energy Tech – Baltimore School District hits milestone in $3.5M Energy Efficiency project
The first phase of a $3.5 million energy conservation project is completed at Baltimore City Public Schools.
The energy efficiency effort led by contractor Ameresco replaced interior and exterior lighting with LED lighting. Some of the lighting also included occupancy sensors so that the lights will turn off automatically when no one is present.
The project is estimated to earn Baltimore’s City Schools a $500,000 rebate from BGE, the local utility, and save over $400,000 annually in lower electricity costs. The 15 schools include elementary, middle, and high schools located throughout Baltimore City.
