The Town received an EECBG grant of up to $28,000 for energy efficiency improvements at Town Hall, which were recommended by the Maryland Energy Administration and based on an audit that they performed in 2010. The grant paid for a new condensing boiler with 96% efficiency that replaced a unit with 84% efficiency; for the retrofit of 97 T-12 fluorescent light fixtures with T-8 bulbs and ballasts that will save 43% in energy; and for a 3.36 kW solar PV system (see pic below) that will help offset the building’s consumption of traditional “brown” power. The solar PV system will save the Town approximately $700 per year in electricity, while also generating SREC income of approximately $500 per year.
