Scotland, NC County Revives Energy Savings Project

Once thought dead, the $1.2 million energy savings project, part of the "Energy Savings Performance Contract" program to update the HVAC and lighting systems in several county buildings is now back on track. When Johnson Controls, one of 15 state-approved contractors in the program, reported that the savings were only going to be $800,000 -- not the $1.2 million initially projected -- it appeared that the project was dead in the water. Thanks to Johnson Controls' revised report to the county, it is projected that the project can now be financed with an additional $400 in excess energy savings. The $1.2 million savings would occur over 15 years and is expected to begin during the 2013-14 fiscal year.
