Taylor County Schools

Taylor County SchoolsCampbellsville, Kentucky

This project, located in Campbellsville, Kentucky, was a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract that included 8 buildings spanning more than 450,000 square feet. This project was 70% funded from energy and operational savings.

  • Taylor County Middle School underwent a total HVAC system replacement. The antiquated and near-end-of-life equipment was replaced with brand-new water source heat pumps, capable of conditioning every classroom independently of one another.
  • 4 new dedicated outside air units were installed to provide fresh air ventilation to all spaces. These also employ bipolar ionization to neutralize the air of any contaminants, giving the schools a greater assurance in mitigating the effects of the Covid-19 virus.
  • A new direct digital HVAC controls system was put in place to monitor, diagnose, and troubleshoot HVAC systems for all buildings on campus from anywhere. 
  • LED lighting retrofits and replacements were installed at all facilities in the district.
  • 3 new rooftop units were put in place to satisfy the cooling loads of the cafeteria and gymnasium, as well as the ability to heat and to cool independently of each other.
  • $12,000 in energy savings were discovered by recommissioning a 4-year-old Trane BAS system that was never properly programmed.
  • Over $30,000 in utility rebates were returned to the school district.
