Dedham, Mass. — Off-Grid, Co-Generation Facility Brings Significant Cost Savings to New York School District. Cummins Northeast Inc., exclusive distributor for Cummins Inc, a global power leader in the design, manufacturing, distribution and service of electric power generation systems, has announced the completion of its Fonda-Fultonville co-generation project in upstate New York. The first grid-independent, co-generation performance project of its kind in a New York school system, it provides the Fonda-Fultonville school district with all the energy necessary to heat and cool its single-campus institution, thus achieving significant energy efficiency and cost-savings.
“As a result of the Cummins Northeast off-grid project, we estimate that the Fonda-Fultonville school district will save $275,000 each calendar year,” said Glenn Goodale, Superintendent of Schools. “Instead of spending money on energy, we could now focus on reducing our budget, introducing new social and instructional programs, enhancing our district staffing, and directly impacting the teaching and learning programs.” Also see Energy ConceptsTags: New York, Schools
