Mesa County studying energy saving options

The Mesa County Public Works Department has received a $15,000 grant to partially fund the purchase of monitors and sensors that will help identify potential energy saving options in county buildings.

The county contributed $30,000 to the year-long pilot program.

The monitors and sensors will gather information that will be analyzed to identify energy savings and, in turn, cost savings.

The county has joined with students in the mechanical engineering degree program at Colorado Mesa University to develop protocols for reducing energy use. Potential initiatives could include cycling daily energy demand to balance peak use and lower utility bills.
