Vote on Lisbon Central School Energy Perfomance Contract is today
LISBON — Lisbon Central School District voters are being asked to vote on a district proposal for an energy performance contract that would get the district more aid money toward the initiative.
The vote is today from 1 to 9 p.m. in the main lobby of the school. Voters need to be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and a legal resident of the town for at least 30 days. However, voters do not need to be a registered voter.The initiative is not subject to voter approval, but a positive vote from the community would increase state aid for the project by 10% (approximately an additional $95,000 in state aid). The district will also qualify for an estimated $161,000 in incentives from local utility companies.
A mailer from the school district says the work will “dramatically increase efficiency and save money.”
The district’s energy savings performance contract with Day Automation Systems, Inc. calls for LED lighting to be installed throughout, building automation system (BAS) upgrade and building envelope improvements in all district buildings.
The work will be fully funded over the 18-year contract period by savings in energy and associated costs.
“Between the state aid generated and the savings realized by these improvements, there is no impact on the local tax levy. The estimated net savings from energy utility reduction is $1.1 million over 18 years or 37.37%,” the district says.
