Savings on school district annual energy budgets


In Idaho, the State Energy Office leveraged SEP funding to support the K-12 Energy Efficiency Project.  Energy audits have been completed on 894 school buildings statewide. HVAC system tune-ups were also completed on the 894 school buildings across Idaho. Approximately $5 million was spent performing the HVAC tune-ups. It is anticipated that the tune-up portion of the project will save Idaho districts about 10 percent of their current energy budgets. Savings from the tune-ups have been estimated to be between 84,102,248 and 269,507,285 kBtu per year. Tune-up dollar savings based on site energy are estimated between $1,254,169 and $3,924,603 per year.
