Like many other school districts across the nation, Franklin City, VA Public Schools has decided to implement a district-wide energy and facility improvement project to reduce energy use and costs. They have turned to ABM Building Services and its Bundled Energy Solutions program for help.
The project is expected to improve the district’s energy efficiency and indoor air quality, comfort and lighting conditions, enhancing the overall learning environment for students, faculty, and staff. In addition to improved facility conditions, Franklin City Public Schools is expected to save more than $1.8 million in energy and operating costs over the next 15 years based on current energy prices.
ABM’s Bundled Energy Solutions program is designed to meet clients’ technical facility needs and sustainability goals by driving energy-related costs out of a client’s operating budget, allowing savings to be reallocated to fund mission critical facility needs.
“We are very excited about the improvements that will be made in our schools. In addition to increasing operating efficiency, the project will enhance the overall learning environments for our students and staff,” said Dr. Michelle R. Belle, Superintendent of Franklin City Public Schools. “ABM Building Services has helped us find a feasible way to make facility and equipment upgrades without burdening our general budget. The money we expect to save in utility and maintenance costs will be utilized to fund the much-needed improvements within our facilities.”
