Police Department Retrofit

Using Energy Block Grant (stimulus) funds from the US Department of Energy, the City of Fayetteville recently retrofitted the Police Department with weatherization, energy efficient lighting and heating & air conditioning systems.

In 2010, Police spent $35,000 on electricity and gas. This project will cut energy costs by $12,500 or more than one third of their total bill. It is also expected to reduce energy consumption by 156,000 kilowatt-hours each year. As a comparison, that is fifteen times more energy than my house used in 2010.
