Early in 2016, Bluegrass Community and Technical College entered into a contract with CMTA Engineers, facilitated by the Kentucky Finance Cabinet. The goal of this contract is to evaluate and implement selected energy saving improvements, financing the improvements with guaranteed energy savings. Ideas for energy reductions were considered at all BCTC Campuses with the exception of Cooper Campus, which is owned by the University of Kentucky.
Implementation of these ideas will begin in the spring of 2016 and involve several themes.
This is a 12 year contract that should provide benefits to BCTC well beyond the term. As utility rates rise, the economic benefits will actually increase for the college.
