A Kansas-based company is trying to convince the Steamboat school board to invest $3 million in energy efficiency projects that it contends will save the schools $4 million in energy savings over the course of the next 15 years. The company, Navitas, uses a process called energy performance contracting, whereby energy savings generated from efficiency projects fund future project, diminishing the total capital costs of such projects. The board voted unanimously to have a more comprehensive study drawn up. [Steamboat Today]
