The County Commissioners in Athens, OH, have approved an agreement aimed at making county buildings more energy efficient.
The agreement, according to The Athens Messenger, is with Johnson Controls. It had previously been tabled. Now, it contains a provision that reduces the county’s financial exposure. The first step is an evaluation that will list structural and operational improvements that the company will make. It also will contain maintenance procedures aimed at reducing expenditures and a final price tag.
Thirty days after the evaluation Johnson Controls will submit a Performance Contracting Project Agreement. The amount of the contract, which will be completed by August, is as yet unspecified, the story said.
Last month, Exelon Corp. announced that it will build a wind farm with 87 turbines in Ohio.
