Mountain Co-op Helps Schools

Holy Cross Energy, based in Glenwood Springs, awarded $252,000 in rebates to Eagle County Schools for an interior LED retrofit. Denver-based Iconergy completed the district-wide project. Crews updated 16,000 interior light fixtures in nine schools, the district office and the transportation center, totaling over 840,000 square feet.

Teachers and students will benefit from the efficient, bright and dimmable lights. The LEDs also have occupancy sensors, which automatically turn on and off the lights when someone enters or exits a room.

By replacing the old lighting in the school, the district expects to save more than 1.4 million kilowatt-hours in 2018 alone. This will add up to significant savings.
