The city of Birmingham, Alabama is investing $61.3 million in energy upgrades in 125 municipal buildings, which will save the city $100 million in energy and operational costs over the next two decades and create local jobs. In a partnership with HVAC manufacturer Trane, the city plans to complete the project over the next two years. The improvements, which include upgrading lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, energy efficiency measures and roof replacements, are expected to generate a more than 30 percent reduction in annual energy and operational costs over the next 20 years. The city will see $3.2 million in savings the first year.
