Energy contract vote by county coming | The Cleveland Daily Banner

The Bradley County Commission will vote next week on proceeding with the next step in arriving at an energy performance contract designed to save million of dollars in energy costs over the next few decades and, in turn, pay for the needed upgrades. ESG Business Development Manager Russ Nelson said his firm has taken the last six weeks assessing the needs of the Bradley County Courthouse, the annex, the Justice Center, the health department and the parks and recreation facility. “In the courthouse, you have two very old boilers — no great efficiency there,” Nelson said. “The cooling tower for the air-conditioning system is well past its useful life. It’s going to use more electricity and more water.” Nelson also said there were “great opportunities” to improve the lighting system with new LED technology which produces less waste heat. The courthouse and annex face similar situations and all show needs in lighting upgrades and water conservation. He said what they found “is very typical.”
