Fort Worth Housing Authority to Be Recognized

Fort Worth, TX – On Thursday, February 21, 2008, The Fort Worth Housing Authority (FWHA) will receive an incentive check for the installation of energy efficient improvements made possible through a collaborative partnership with Ameresco and Oncor.

As a result of this energy saving initiative undertaken by FWHA, Steve Morgan, an advisor from Ameresco will present FWHA with an energy rebate check for $23,497.87 at the FWHA Board of Commissioners meeting at 5:00 p.m. in the Butler Addition/Place Community Room at 1201 Luella. Cynthia Leon, the Housing and Urban Development Regional Director and Mike Guyton, vice president, Oncor customer operations, Fort Worth will attend the ceremony.

Under the contract with the FWHA, Ameresco installed energy-efficient interior and exterior lighting, heating and cooling systems, boilers, windows, water-saving devices and other measures at FWHA facilities and public housing developments. That work reduced FWHA’s energy demand by 330,000 kilowatt hours or enough energy to supply the needs of about 20 single-family homes in the Oncor service area for one year.
