Upsala School Board members received information on the Public Buildings Enhanced Energy Efficiency Program (PBEEEP) for local governments during their meeting Wednesday.
Superintendent Gery Arndt asked the board members to review the information and told them a representative of PBEEEP would be present at the Wednesday, March 28 board meeting to give a presentation on the program.
According to information supplied to board members, “as government units seek to contain operational costs, create jobs, reduce emissions and save energy through energy-related infrastructure improvements and initiatives, the PBEEEP will provide assistance through an easy access approach that combines expert technical services and financing. Any Minnesota local government interested in enhancing the energy efficiency of their buildings is eligible to submit an application.”
