Findlay City Schools has just completed a significant $2.9 million upgrade to a number of school facilities. The project was enabled by a creative combination of grants, rebates, and self-funding energy efficiency upgrades developed through Columbus, Ohio energy firm Plug Smart. "We knew some of our building infrastructure systems like our boilers were reaching end-of-life conditions," states Findlay City Schools Maintenance Supervisor, Dennis Doolittle. "With potential major repairs in our future, we wanted to get ahead of the problems by exploring renovation programs with a number of energy firms. In the end, Plug Smart came back to us with a very creative program that enabled us to actually pay for the project through guaranteed energy savings."
