Award Description: The City is replacing the polluting and inefficient City Hall heating system with a clean and energy efficient dual-fuel boiler system featuring an annual fuel utilization efficiency rating of roughly 85%. The new system is expected to consume 95,960 kWh less energy per year than the former system - a roughly 6% reduction. The new boiler system, when running on oil fuel, will release 27%, or 93 tons, fewer greenhouse gas emissions per year than the old units. When fired by natural gas, the new heating system will release 47% less greenhouse gas emissions annually when compared with the old boilers. The City of Bristol also will hire an energy management consultant to perform investment grade energy audits on 63 municipal buildings and facilities. The audits have the potential of conserving 4,008,787 kWh of energy per year and saving the City roughly $445,481 per year in energy costs. This will lead to a greenhouse gas reduction of 2,697 tons of equivalent carbon dioxide annually.
Project Description: As of September 30, 2009, the City purchased two dual-fuel steam boilers, one blowdown separator, one boiler feed system, and one water treatment unit.
