The installation of equipment that regulates and circulates air in portables at Arrowhead Elementary was completed this summer. This equipment replacement has a number of benefits including: replacement of an aging mechanical system with a more cost-effective system that reduces operation costs, improves teachers’ and students’ comfort and improves the air quality in the portables. Additionally, an aging wood ramp was replaced with a new ADA compliant ramp.
With this completion, there will be a guaranteed utility savings of 14,042 kWH/year. The associated reduction in annual carbon emissions based on calculated savings equates to 7.7 metric tons of carbon dioxide, which is the equivalent of removing one car from the road.
This much needed building improvement was funded by the 2018 bond, thanks to Northshore voters.
