Energy Efficiency Projects
Reducing energy use and the District's carbon footprint are important priorities of Shorewood Schools. To help reduce energy costs, the Shorewood School Board approved an energy efficiency project during the fall of 2012. As part of the project, the District's lighting, plumbing, HVAC components and controls will be repaired, replaced and/or upgraded throughout the summer of 2013.
The projects will cost roughly $5.9 million; however, once complete, they will save the District a minimum of $363,000 annually in energy costs. (Honeywell, the District's energy partner, is guaranteeing at least $363,000 in savings.) The projects will also reduce the District's carbon footprint by 2085 metric tons of natural gas and 1592 metric tons of electricity, moving Shorewood into the future with reduced energy use and decreased utility costs, benefiting both the school system and its taxpayers.
