MSD of New Durham was looking for ways to reduce energy costs at their school buildings and after a competitive process selected Performance Services, to implement a $2.3 million guaranteed energy savings project. The project includes roof-mount and ground-mount solar arrays at Westville Elementary and Westville Middle-High School. The project is made possible due to Indiana’s net metering benefits for renewable systems. The net metering term will last 30 years per the interconnection agreement with NIPSCO. The combined solar array will provide 970 kilowatts (kW-DC) of clean, renewable energy and offset approximately 95% of electrical usage at the K-12 building. The project will result in a cumulative net energy savings of approximately $1.1 million over 20 years. Approved by the school board in November 2017, the project will be completed and producing power by mid-May 2018.
