Energy Efficiency - May 26, 2020
New York town approves $1.9M energy efficiency overhaul
The City Council of Jamestown, N.Y., approved May 18 a resolution that will allow for energy efficiency upgrades totaling $1,947,574 to be implemented across the city.
The projects will be funded through a combination of funds from the Smart City Capital Investment Program bond, state Downtown Revitalization Initiative and capital funding, the Post-Journal reported.
The city is predicted to save around $78,000 a year in energy costs because of the improvements, which would result in a payback of the initial costs within 24 years.
The intended upgrades include more than half of the funds going toward a new heating and cooling system for the city Municipal Building, in addition to a heating plant upgrade for the Public Works Department Steele Street facility and lighting upgrades for the city Municipal Building, fire stations, Public Works Department facility, Parks Department building and Russell E. Diethrick Jr. Park.
