Knoxville, TN Votes for $19M Energy Efficiency Project

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports the energy conservation project costs more than $19 million, but the city will pay nothing up front because the work will be paid for over 13 years by the annual savings guaranteed by the contractor Ameresco based in Massachusetts. The work is expected to last up to two years and will involve 99 city-owned buildings, 37 athletic fields, and three golf courses. The project is expected to reduce the city's energy use by 15 to 25 percent. 12/30 AP
