WWU to begin nearly $3.2 million energy-efficiency work
The Bellingham Herald
A nearly $3.2 million project to make 26 buildings at Western Washington University more energy-efficient is expected to begin in March. The university is using a state program called Energy Saving Performance Contracting to finance the work to reduce Western's annual use of electricity, gas, water and sewer. That reduction is expected to save $227,000 to $337,000 a year - the higher amount factors in inflation through 2024 - with the savings going to repay a $3.06 million bond.
