GHAPS upgrades save energy, money

Renovations at White Pines Middle School has saved the Grand Haven school district $30,000 in natural gas over the current school year - which is $5,000 more than expected, school officials said. Lakeshore Middle School's natural gas savings were about $4,500, and Griffin Elementary School saved about $3,000, they said. The Grand Haven school board on Monday reviewed the results of last year's energy-efficient updates paid for by an energy bond.

“I’m confident that, once we move forward with the additional buildings, that the savings demonstrated will even be more significant,” Grand Haven Area Public Schools Superintendent Keith Konarska said.

Electric usage in the three buildings was higher in several months than it had been in previous years.
