Energy plan will save millions for Colquitt County schools

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Colquitt County School leaders are working to save money on energy costs.

They say expenses increase every year. They came up with a plan to save 19-million dollars in utility costs over the next 15-years by replacing heat and AC units and installing energy-saving light bulbs.

The updates will take place in all 19 buildings in the school system.

“Its adds up. Other things were doing in the program; you know we've looked at things like the Dyson hand dyers in the bathrooms. It's amazing how much you spend on paper towels and trash bags, said Brad Gregory, Assistant Superintendent of Finance.

Leaders hop the plan will lower their energy costs by 40-percent.

The savings will go into the general fund for other uses.
