McKinstry to Complete Energy Audit for Clearfield, Utah
The city of Clearfield, Utah, has hired McKinstry to do an energy audit of its facilities, the Standard Examiner reports.
The audit will include suggested areas for energy savings, what the cost would be to make the energy-efficiency changes and what the estimated return on investment would be for the changes. The city will prioritize energy efficiency projects based on their ROI. The resulting projects will be paid for with energy savings.
Seventy percent of the city’s energy costs come from its City Hall building, Aquatic Center and Arts Center. The balance comes from street and outdoor lighting.
Retrofitting the ballasts, bulbs and fixtures over the Aquatic Center’s pool area will likely be the first order of business, followed perhaps by variable drives on the building’s pumping systems.
McKinstry was selected to complete the $30,000 audit following a five-month review.
The City of Bozeman, Montana, signed a contract with McKinstry to perform energy efficiency upgrades in December 2014. Also last year, the company helped the City of New Hope, Minnesota, save $96,381 in utility costs after one year of energy upgrades.
