In an effort to conserve energy and funds, Montgomery County (NY) is looking to replace equipment that has become outdated in its municipal buildings.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.
The resolution authorizing Executive Matthew Ossenfort to enter into the agreement puts a $2.5 million cap on the projects. Annually, the county could save about $190,107 with a 15-year financial term, according to SmartWatt. SmartWatt Account Executive Greg Royer said once the legislature accepts the investment grade audit (IGA), which provides technology and financial assessments associated with the energy conservation project, and signs the agreement with National Grid, the company will move forward with construction.
