Colbert County, AL, Upgrading for Efficiency
Commissioners in Colbert County, AL, voted 5-1 this week to approve $2 million for an energy efficiency project.
The TimesDaily says that the dissenting vote was caused by concerns of one commissioner that information on an addition to the project, a $299,000 replacement boiler for the courthouse, was incomplete. Siemens, which is the contractor for the project, did not attend the meeting at which the vote was taken. The story says that the project will be paid for through savings on utilities. Among other the things, the project will consist of lighting and plumbing equipment replacement. The community, by voting when it did, will get a 2.35 percent interest rate on a loan from Bank of America.
McKinstry last year was selected to replace the boiler in the courthouse in Tillamook County, OR. The old unit dates from the 1950s.
