Project Description
As one of the largest suburban school districts in New York State, Sachem School District is planning to implement a Phase III Energy Performance Contract. This opportunity will allow the district to implement energy upgrades to the most cutting edge technology in the industry. The Phase III EPC will feature nearly 2 MW of roof mounted solar arrays and approximately 1.5 MW of the cogeneration units. All of these upgrades will be funded by future guaranteed energy savings to ensure that there is zero taxpayer impact and the district is able to realize $14 Million in cash flow throughout the life of the project.

In Phase III it is estimated that 8.8 million annual KWH will be saved  - the equivalent environmental impact of over 1,998 acres of planted trees, 756,938 gallons of gasoline and 15,460 barrels of oil. Estimated emission reductions in one year would include 14.7 million pounds of carbon dioxide and 28.5 metric tons of sulfur dioxide. This EPC would also save 291,000 gallons of water from low-flow faucets and aerators that will be installed.
