Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, recently announced the completion of a $2.8 million energy savings performance contract (ESPC) with the New Albany School District in New Albany, Miss. and a $935,000 ESPC with the Holly Springs School District in Holly Springs, Miss. The two projects span 12 facilities and incorporate dozens of efficiency upgrades, including HVAC, lighting, and IT retrofits, saving the New Albany and Holly Springs districts more than $2.4 Million in energy costs over the 15 year partnership.”
“The projects we facilitated for the Mississippi school districts are great success stories, and we hope they pave the way for future projects with other districts in the state who are looking to be more energy efficient, so they can reallocate funds to support much needed educational initiatives,” said Tammy Fulop, vice president of sales, Energy & Sustainability Services at Schneider Electric.
With approval of the MDA (Mississippi Development Authority) the New Albany ESPC, completed in October, sought to provide a better learning environment for the district’s students, while making critical efficiency improvements without raising taxes. The project with Schneider Electric included upgrades to six facilities, with a majority of the work focused on the district’s middle and high schools.
