In an effort to conserve energy and funds, Montgomery County (NY) is looking to replace equipment that has become outdated in its municipal buildings. The Montgomery County Legislature will move forward with energy management projects after the Budget and Finance Committee meeting Tuesday. Legislators voted on whether to enter into an agreement with National Grid for energy conservation and management services, done through Ballston Lake-based energy efficiency company SmartWatt.
