CCC grant will help lower lighting costs in schools

Monroe County Community School Corporation and Richland-Bean Blossom Community School Corporation participated in a successful 2015 Community Conservation Challenge grant request headed up by the City of Bloomington.


The school corporations’ share of the grant proceeds will go to cost-saving LED lighting upgrades and motion sensors. LEDs draw far less power than existing lighting and motion sensors automatically turn out the lights after occupants leave a room. Lighting is a major operating expense for the schools.
