TST BOCES Energy Management has recently received a $70,000 grant from the Park Foundation to support the hiring of a new HVAC Specialist.
This HVAC specialist will expand the benefits of TST BOCES’ Energy Management service at no additional cost to the districts, thanks largely to support from the Park Foundation’s grant.
Component districts will be able to consult with the specialist about HVAC and building automation. This will help districts increase the energy efficiency of school facilities while also increasing the comfort level of students and staff in those buildings. Typically, school districts would hire a third-party consultant at an extra expense, but now TST BOCES will be able to provide this resource as part of the Energy Management service.
The grant will be paid in two installments of $35,000, the first for this current fiscal year and the second to be transferred in the next fiscal year.
