City of Spring Hill awarded state energy grant to reduce electric, HVAC costs

Energy Grant

The City of Spring Hill on Sept. 6 was awarded an energy grant by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) to install a series of energy efficiency projects at three City facilities to create significant taxpayer savings on municipal utility costs.

The 50/50 matching grant will fund the cost of the energy project up to $55,319.56, of which TDEC will reimburse 50 percent up to $26,409.78.

Based on two years of utility bills, the three facilities use an average total of 2,064,180 kilowatt hours (kWh). The grant will allow the City to install indoor and outdoor LED lighting fixtures, energy-efficient HVAC components, and retrofits such as programmable thermostats and infrared wall switches that are expected to make the buildings 30-40 percent more efficient. The City anticipates reducing energy usage by 198,025 kWh, equaling $19,802.00 in annual savings.

The estimated return on investment (ROI) for the cost of all three projects is less than three years, and the ROI for the City’s cost portion of this project is about 18 months. The project will be completed within less than six months after entering into a contract with TDEC.
