Biddeford wins audit

Biddeford Primary School was selected as the grand prize winning school in the NorthEast Electrical Distributors “Project Green Lights 2016” essay submission contest. NorthEast Electrical Distributors and Sylvania will provide a lighting energy audit that will recommend an appropriate energy savings solution, including lamps and ballasts. Following completion of the audit, the school will be provided with an energy efficient lighting system that will achieve the maximum energy savings impact, up to a $50,000 value, including equipment and installation costs. The lighting system will be provided by NorthEast Electrical Distributors and Sylvania.

“We were ecstatic to learn Biddeford Primary School was named the $50,000 winner of the NorthEast Electrical Distributors Project Green Lights grant,” said Superintendent Jeremy Ray. “Throughout the district we value green initiatives and teaching the importance of using resources wisely. We have mandatory recycling, we compost in most grades and we follow green cleaning practices. This grant will allow us to take the next step of energy reduction through LED lighting, both inside and outside, and is a gift that keeps on giving. It was an easy application process, and I would encourage other school districts to consider applying in the future.”
