Athens, OH, Nears $4.28M Retrofit Project
County commissioners in Athens, OH, approved $4.28 million to upgrade county buildings, according to the Athens Messenger.
The story says that the approval is contingent on the ability to get municipal lease financing. Such financing will enable payments to be made from a general fund. Energy savings and reimbursements are expected to pay for most of the project, however.
The story says that Johnson Controls will oversee more than $4 million of the project’s budget. The plan is to upgrade 19 buildings. Ten of those will receive LED retrofit lighting. The Athens County Department of Job and Family Services will receive $2.28 million in improvements, including heating and cool systems and controls, replacement of 198 windows and door weather stripping.
The challenges of municipal retrofits of historic buildings are illustrated by work being done by Schneider Electric in Wetumpka, AL, which is the government seat of Elmore County.
