The Bond Bank approved the District’s request for financing in the amount of $7.63 million. The District will draw on the funds over the course of a year while undertaking the improvements. In total, the energy efficiency upgrades are expected to save the District over $200 thousand annually by reducing energy consumption by approximately 275 thousand kWh. All improvements were completed in 2018.
