North Olmsted school improvements | Schools
North Olmsted students and staff will notice a number of changes in their buildings. The district installed new energy efficient doors, windows, screens, boilers and lights in a number of buildings with no cost to residents by taking advantage of the provisions in House Bill 264 that provide funds for the upgrades.
The Energy Conservation Program allows our district to make $3.2 million in energy efficiency improvements to the buildings, and use the cost savings to pay for those improvements.
The building upgrades will result in utility cost savings of over $284,000 each year and provide an improved comfort level for students, staff and parents.
House Bill 264, passed into law in 1985, creates the financing mechanism that allows districts the opportunity to borrow funds to make the energy improvements, at no added cost to the taxpayer.
Since the inception of the program, more than 500 Ohio school districts have taken advantage of this opportunity.
