Shawnee Local Schools to Save $117,560 Annually Through Implementing Energy Conservation Project

Shawnee Local Schools TIPP CITY, Ohio, Nov. 6, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Michael Lamb, Superintendent of Shawnee Local Schools, is pleased to announce that the district is implementing an energy conservation project, to be implemented by Energy Optimizers, USA, to improve four existing academic buildings, reduce over-all energy usage, and save taxpayer resources. “In an age of declining revenue and resources, the ability to reduce our operational expenditures through greater energy efficiency is tremendously important for the fiscal health of the school district. Energy Optimizers, USA, and SHP Leading Design have enabled us to save precious dollars that can be redirected into the classrooms for quality instruction for our students,” says Lamb.

Energy Optimizers, USA, along with strategic partner, SHP Leading Design, has identified areas where enhancements should be made, to the local high school in particular, so the buildings can be more purposeful in their use of energy without compromising a comfortable learning environment for teachers and students. The district is utilizing a funding mechanism through the Ohio School Facilities Commission’s House Bill 264 program so that the District does not have to ask for any taxpayer dollars.

Though the total cost of this project exceeds $1.1 million (prior to grants and rebates), the Shawnee Local School system stands to save a staggering $117,560 in annual energy and operations costs. As a result, the District can count on a 9.36 year payback, along with other post-project benefits, including energy management and energy education programming, in addition to increasingly efficient buildings that facilitate a productive and safe academic experience.

Energy Optimizers, USA developed a project for Shawnee Local Schools focused on lighting upgrades, which will significantly reduce electrical consumption across the district, in addition to upgrading existing mechanical equipment and retrofitting boilers. Both Shawnee High School and Middle School, along with Maplewood Intermediate School, Elmwood Primary School and the Bus Garage will all receive top of the line upgrades upon implementation of the energy conservation project including re-lamping and de-lamping fluorescent fixtures, occupancy sensors, exterior fixtures, steam boiler plant retrofits, computer upgrades, and smart controls on kitchen equipment.

“To date, SHP has helped over 35 school districts with energy saving initiatives,” noted Charlie Jahnigen, Vice President of SHP Leading Design. “SHP has worked with Shawnee Local Schools since 2012 to improve their learning environments. Focusing on energy efficiency is a great step to long-term facility management,” added Jahnigen. The breadth of project experience and commitment to a critical mission by Energy Optimizers, USA and SHP will serve this Lima-area school district well.

Additionally, students and teachers can expect to receive funding to implement an energy education program that allows students to take the Shawnee Local School District’s sustainability efforts a step further by creating student groups called “Green Teams.” The students who wish to participate in Green Team programming will participate in engrossing, educational STEM (Science. Technology. Engineering. Math) activities related to energy conservation, while encouraging their peers to become more environmentally conscious.

“It is always encouraging when the school district we are working with is as excited as we are to implement an energy conservation project,” notes Bob Hausmann, Operations Manager for Energy Optimizers, USA. “Shawnee Local Schools’ administration and School Board members are not only pleased to make positive changes in order to conserve both energy and taxpayer resources, they are passionate about creating better, more efficient facilities for their students and teachers. We truly look forward to helping them meet their fiscal goals and assisting them in championing a great idea – the idea that a ‘greener,’ more sustainable means of energy use is not only responsible and practical, it is preferable.”

OxBlue Offers Upgrade Incentives to Existing Customers

ATLANTA, Ga., May 30, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — OxBlue, a leader in the construction camera industry, announced today an incentive program for existing clients to maximize the value they receive from their OxBlue construction camera service. “We want to ensure that our clients have access to the right construction webcam system for the projects they are building today,” stated Chandler McCormack, President of OxBlue. “It’s why we’ve developed a range of options to enable our customers to upgrade to the right system that meets their needs at a minimal difference in cost.”

Through the upgrade program, OxBlue’s clients can:

* Upgrade their current camera to a higher resolution or PTZ construction camera. Users can trade in their existing hardware and pay only the difference in cost between the two systems plus a small increase in the monthly service fee.

* Upgrade their camera to use solar power at no charge when purchasing a solar power station.

* Refurbish their existing OxBlue construction camera system, often at no cost at all.

A few examples of how these upgrade options can be put into practice:

* A client could upgrade from a 4- to a 6-megapixel system, which provides a 50 percent increase in resolution for less than a 10 percent increase in price.

* If a client using a fixed position OxBlue camera wins a large project, rather than purchasing a second camera to cover the entire jobsite, they can trade in their existing camera for full credit towards OxBlue’s megapixel robotic PTZ camera. They pay for the difference in hardware and service, while avoiding the cost of a second camera.

* A client can purchase an OxBlue solar power station to save money, take advantage of the 30 percent federal tax credit or add some points to their LEED certification. The client sends their existing construction webcam back to OxBlue, and it is configured for use with the solar power station at no additional cost.

* After using a camera on several projects, a client can send the camera back to OxBlue and have it refurbished into like-new condition, often at no cost. The construction camera is then ready for the next project.

For more information on the various upgrade options available, please contact OxBlue at (888) 849-2583.
