The director of buildings and grounds updated the South Williamsport Area School Board about the district's energy conservation project.
Lynn Kromer explained the progress on the following major pieces of the project:
Low E glass has been installed in the back of Central Elementary School.
A new chiller has been installed in Central Elementary School.
A new dishwasher has been installed in Central Elementary School. It replaces one installed in the 1980s.
Work for installing occupancy sensors to measure motion and oxygen in all of the classrooms is about 95 percent complete.
Work continues on replacing the new stage rigging at South Williamsport Area Junior/Senior High School, which is being done for safety issues. It will finish in early winter.
As reported at earlier meetings, the energy project is expected to save $126,862 annually.
The school board borrowed $1.93 million from Woodland Bank at a fixed interest rate of 2.75 percent. The district will make payments toward it for the next 10 years. After the 10 years, the district will have repaid all of its debts.
The school board paid for the project in full in the summer to save $28,700.
