 McKinstry and Fremont RE-2 School District Partner on Utility Savings Project
 McKinstry and Fremont RE-2 School District, in consultation with the Colorado Energy Office, partnered on $3.2 million project that includes a ~500kW solar PV ground-mounted array to serve the high school and nearly $350,000 in technical services including a 2-year student and staff educational program.
McKinstry will enhance multiple Fremont
RE-2 School District facilities through lighting upgrades, HVAC replacements and renovations, weatherization improvements, hot water heater efficiency upgrades, and a behavior-focused energy awareness and operational efficiency program. The project was able to leverage a
grant of nearly $600,000 from the Colorado Department of Education’s BEST program and approximately $580,000
in incentives from Black Hills will save the District nearly $140,000 per year in utilities to help offset the overall total project costs. After construction, the project will generate over $140,000 in savings from lower utilities per year for the District.
Since Colorado established its Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) program in the mid-1990s, 152 public jurisdictions – including 58 school districts – have worked with energy services companies, like McKinstry, to save more than $34 million in annual utility costs, 193 million kWh of electricity and more than 507 million gallons of water.
To date, McKinstry has completed nearly 600 K-12 energy projects for more than 450 school districts nationwide.
