HB2332 schools; energy contracts (Boone) allows school districts to enter into energy performance and renewable energy power purchase contracts and utilize the savings realized from these contracts to purchase energy saving and renewable energy measures. It allows schools to establish an energy savings account that consists of a designated pool of capital investment monies to fund energy saving projects in school facilities. The bill states that they can use these dollars on projects or measures that save energy in a school facility, including technical assistance by a qualified provider or a utility, energy or water service company, as well as repayment of capital investment monies to the qualified provider plus reasonable carrying charges. This bill will help schools save energy, water, and money. HB2332 was amended on the Senate Floor to include the provisions for energy saving appliance standards for pool pumps and portable electric spas.
