LIPA Assists Harborfield Schools to achieve Significant Energy Efficiency Savings
The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has partnered with Harborfields Central School District to achieve significant-energy efficient upgrades throughout the district. This project will help significantly lower operating costs saving approximately $75,000 per year. Contractor Johnson Controls installed more than 6,000 energy efficient lighting fixtures throughout the district. The installation of this new lighting will save Harrborfields an estimated 421,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year and reduce its peak electric demand by an estimated 226 kilowatts (kW), which is equivalent to removing 40 cars from the road each year. In addition, the district also received $273,800 in rebates through LIPA’s Efficiency Long Island Program which was used to help offset the cost of the efficiency upgrades. The savings achieved through this energy efficiency project are now able to be used for programs that will benefit the students and the community.
