Ecosystem Energy Services was chosen among a field of highly qualified energy services providers to provide design and implementation services a Phase 3 district-wide energy project. Although Phase 1 had been completed by another firm, Mineola chose to proceed with a different firm for its project.

“Sometimes you need a fresh set of eyes on an existing problem. Looking at things differently usually yields better results,” explained superintendent of schools Michael Nagler when discussing the district’s selection of Ecosystem.

Leveraging the Energy Performance Contract (EPC) procurement model, Ecosystem targeted the the buildings with major asset renewal measures, including steam-to-hot water conversion in two schools. Controls and computer energy management systems will be upgraded and optimized to provide the school with integrated systems. Upgrades include a solar PV installation at the High School.

The detailed study was completed in 2016 and is going through the SED approval process before work begins.
