MINNEAPOLIS - Honeywell announced a $2.2 million energy savings performance contract with the Lowell Area Schools district in Lowell, Mich. Work under the contract began in July, and Honeywell is providing energy-efficient building upgrades - including building control, HVAC, and lighting improvements - across all eight facilities in the district. The upgrades will help the district cut its utility costs by 15 percent, which is expected to generate $2.9 million in savings during the 10-year contract.

"The taxpayers in our school district have been generous, and we want to be good stewards of the facilities they helped build," said Shari Miller, superintendent of Lowell Area Schools. "This contract enables us to make necessary capital upgrades, despite the decline in state funding and without a bond referendum."
