昆士市報喜訊 獲能源部補助款5年20萬元

             (Boston Orange 編譯) 昆士市政府將得到美國能源部 (DOER)520萬元能源效率項目補助款,期以每年節約28億英熱單位能源。

             麻州綠色社區項目提供很有競爭力的補助款,在市政大樓,建築物,設施及學校等地推動清潔能源項目,幫助地方市鎮減少能源耗用及花費

             昆士市政府將把這筆補助經費用在5個能源項目上,1. 為北昆士高中的浴室,儲物櫃房間,以及體育館,換上發光二極管(LED)燈具;2. 把派克小學的內部燈光,換成LED管燈具; 3. 擴大亞特蘭大中學的樓宇控制,以控制排氣扇;4. 擴大Beechwood Knoll小學的樓宇控制,以控制排氣扇;5. 購買5輛油電兩用警察巡邏車,以更換現有的警察巡邏車。

             為完成估值55770元的這些工程,昆士市已取得8萬零82元的公用事業獎勵金。國家電網將捐助15%,將資助20萬元,約佔這5項工程總共所需款項的36%

             剩下的49%,估計約27688元,將由昆士市府支付。

             昆士市從2011年開始獲得地方市鎮綠色社區項目補助款,總值約102325元。昆士市能夠獲得更高額的補助來購買水電兩用車,是因為昆士市維持了3年以上的節約能源15%

CITY OF QUINCY GRANTED DOER FUNDING FOR ENERGY-EFFICIENT PROJECT

QUINCY, MA – September 23, 2021 The City of Quincy will be receiving $200,000 in DOER (Department of Energy Resources) funding to support five energy-efficiency projects, projected to save 2,797.05 MMBTUs annually. The MA Green Communities Program provides competitive grants to help municipalities reduce energy use and costs by implementing clean energy projects in municipal buildings, facilities, and schools.

With this grant funding, the City will work on five energy projects:

1. Replace the bathroom, locker room, and gym lighting at North Quincy High School with LED fixtures

2. Replace the interior lighting at Parker Elementary School with LED fixtures

3. Expand the building controls at Atlantic Middle School to control the exhaust fans

4. Expand the building controls at Beechwood Knoll Elementary School to control the exhaust fans

5. Purchase five hybrid Police Cruisers, to replace existing police cruisers

To accomplish this work valued at $550,770, Quincy has gotten commitments for $80,082 in utility incentives. National Grid is expected to contribute 15%, and DOER to fund $200,000 which is 36% of these 5 projects combined costs. The 49% balance, estimated at $270,688 will be paid by the City.

Since 2011, the City of Quincy has received multiple Green Communities Program grants totaling $1,020,325. Quincy was able to qualify for a higher level of funding for the purchase of hybrid vehicles because the City has maintained at least 15% energy reduction for three or more years.
