Spring Hill has received an energy grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) for a number of energy efficiency projects.
The city was awarded $26,409.78 for projects including reduction of dangerous emissions and energy efficiency upgrades. The money will be used to reduce electricity and HVAC consumption at the Spring Hill Water Treatment Plant, public library and city hall. The TDEC will match city funding by reimbursing the city to a limit of $26,409.78. The project will include LED light change outs, more efficient HVAC components and programmable thermostats. The aim is to make the buildings 30 percent to 40 percent more efficient by reducing electric usage by 198,025 kWh. The annual savings is expected to be $9,802.00.
The story at The Spring Hill Home Page says that the Spring Hill Water Treatment Plant will get LED lighting and the city’s public library will get an energy management platform for its HVAC system.
