Long Island power utility helps schools go green

Uniondale, NY - - The Long Island Power Authority LIPA, who has been helping Long Island schools go greenm presented the East Williston Union Free School District with a LIPA Efficiency Long Island rebate for $138,965 after completing a major energy-efficient lighting project.

The district contracted with Ameresco to upgrade all three of the schools with energy-efficient lighting and occupancy sensors. This project will help the district significantly lower operating costs and save approximately $75,000 annually.

Through the aforementioned improvements, it is estimated that the East Williston School District will save up to 420,000 kilowatt hours kWh per year and reduce its peak electric demand by an estimated 162 kilowatts kW, which is equivalent to removing 40 cars from the road each year.
