District proposes energy upgrades
On May 18, voters will be asked to approve a proposition allowing Somers schools to move ahead with a districtwide project that will fund nearly $9 million in energy upgrades.
The project would have a “zero impact” on taxpayers, according to Assistant Superintendent for Business Chris Platania. The project is said to be “fully funded” by energy savings and state aid. It would involve replacing light bulbs, installing new heating, cooling and ventilation systems and replacing boilers.
It is guaranteed to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual savings under the energy performance contract prepared by Energia, the district’s consultants.
