A proposal to net the Conneaut School District over $121,433 in annual energy coast savings was pitched to members of the Conneaut School Board meeting in work session Wednesday evening at Alice L. Schafer Annex.

Present, in addition to the school district administrators, were school directors Dr. Walter Thomas, Don Ellis, Jr., Dot Luckock, Brian Boyce, John Burnham, Cheryl Krachkowski, and David Schaef. Absent were Jody Sperry and Kathy Klink.

Three representatives from Smart Edge were present to explain the proposal - a self funded turnkey project which reduces energy costs, and improves building systems operation.

They noted that all costs and savings are guaranteed, and would show a positive cash flow over the entire term.

Energy conservation measures recommended were exterior lighting, poles and walkways at all six buildings - the two elementary schools, the two middle schools and the senior high school with current lights giving way to higher efficiency LEDS [more lighting, less energy use], interior classroom lighting upgrades at the two Lake schools and the Schafer annex [replace older lighting with better efficiency lights not updated in the renovations years ago], wall insulation upgrades in the music and older gym areas at Lake Middle, and boiler replacement at Lake Elementary.
