The Problem

Two schools in a Central School District in New York had windows that were not thermally efficient causing the district to lose money yearly on heating and cooling. These windows were often non-operating and unsightly. The money to improve the facility and operate the building was spent instead on rising energy costs. Energy Consultant, Honeywell, and window manufacturer, Kasson and Keller, worked together for the resolution.

The Solution

Kasson and Keller and Honeywell’s Energy Performance Contract used energy efficient windows to replace the existing units. What is Performance Contracting? Honeywell stated it best, “Performance contracting offers an alternative to the traditional bid and spec process by placing the burden of performance and guaranteed results on energy service contractors. Customers can then apply the savings they realize toward facility improvements, within existing budgets and without the need for capital funding.”
