Upgrades to Three Buildings in St. Paul
An National Public Radio story posted at the Post-Bulletin describes a retrofit program in downtown St. Paul.
The first step is the retrofit of the First National Bank sign, which the story describes as iconic. The next step is to install LEDs in the First National Bank, the U.S. Bank and a third building. All of the buildings are owned by Madison Equities. The $12.5 million project also includes updates to the HVAC systems.
The project is primarily using PACE financing under the auspices of the St. Paul Port Authority. Xcel Energy is providing $1 million in rebates through the Minnesota Conservation Improvement Program, the story says.
Local residents and businesses soon may be able to choose to purchase electricity produced by a community solar garden, or by a forest-derived biomass facility – or by both, according to a September 17 report in the Grand Rapids (Minnesota) Herald-Review.
