ST. CLOUD, MN (KNSI) - The St. Cloud School District is expected to receive nearly $260,000 in rebates and government incentives after completing a one-point-eight million dollar energy conservation project.
Light bulbs in district buildings were replaced, and low-flow plumbing fixtures were installed. It's expected to save the school district $193,000 in utility, operations and maintenance costs each year.
Superintendent Bruce Watkins says the project is a good first step toward a strategic plan to address major deferred maintenance in school buildings. Watkins says the replacement of roofs, boilers, parking lots and other items are anticipated in the school district's 10-year facilities plan.
