Center Grove Community School Corporation is planning to heavily invest in renewable energy. The Center Grove School Board approved a $17 million Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract to not only reduce the district’s utility costs but also make the district home to the first two net zero schools in Indiana.

  • Implementation of a 500.4 kW roof-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) array for Center Grove High School
  • Implementation of a 239.9 kW roof-mounted solar PV array for Center Grove Elementary School
  • Solar retro-commissioning for existing ground-mounted solar array at Walnut Grove Elementary School
  • Integration of Building Automation System (BAS) controls at Center Grove Middle School North into new Trane BAS for improved energy efficiency and occupant comfort
  • Retro-commissioning of BAS controls for 13 facilities, providing optimized setpoints and zone schedules, updated graphics, and optimal start sequencing and fan cycling
