Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract

This project was a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract that included ten facilities that covered over 438,316 square feet in the Marion County School District, located in Lebanon, Kentucky. 

  • A new geothermal heating and cooling system was implemented at Lebanon Middle School 
  • All existing control systems were retro commissioned and a new web-based DDC system was installed at the fitness center 
  • T8s, metal halides, wall packs, and gym lights were replaced with new LED fixtures at multiple facilities 
  • Lebanon Middle School received high efficiency heat pump water heaters 
  • Building envelope repairs were implemented at Lebanon Elementary School, Calvary Elementary School, and the bus garage

For Phase 2, both Glasscock Elementary School and West Marion Elementary School will receive new web-based controls for the HVAC systems. Glasscock ES will also receive a full heat pump replacement.

For West Marion ES, all unit ventilators will be converted to console heat pumps and the electric boiler and hydronic pumps will be replaced. A dedicated outdoor air system unit will be installed for ventilation control. The existing cooling tower, electric boiler and pumps will be replaced by a new geothermal system for heating and cooling purposes.
