Oxford High earns $44K for energy efficiencies

OXFORD, Miss. — The Oxford School District has received $44,439 for energy-saving efficiencies built into the new high school.

Tennessee Valley Authority regional marketing manager David Sharp made the presentation Monday.

Sharp says the rebate reflects 10 cents per kilowatt-hour of projected savings in the 220,000-square-foot school’s first year of operation.

Among upgrades are motion detectors that cut back lighting and climate control in unoccupied rooms, along with low-heat, high-visibility lighting systems.

Superintendent Brian Harvey says it was important to design the school as energy efficient so the district wouldn’t be faces will higher utility bills later.

Officials say Oxford High was willing to be training ground for some of the new designs.
