Town Highway Department Gets a(n Energy) Cleaning

Wrapping it up...

Written by Jim Holahan, Town of Danby Board Member

The Town has just completed “wrapping up” the Town Highway garage Clean Energy Community project and the building is now all snugged up against the elements.

The Town of Danby was one of the first towns in the Southern Tier to earn a Clean Energy Community Designation from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), completing five high-impact clean energy actions including benchmarking, a community campaign, clean heating and cooling improvements, energy code training and a solar permit.

The Clean Energy Community funding helped enable the Town Highway garage upgrades including air sealing hundreds of feet of leaky cracks in the interior wall surface, installing new insulated garage doors with remote control openers, and insulating the attic space to keep the cold out and the heating and cooling in.

Air source heat pumps were installed in the office areas and maintenance garage, which replaced the propane fossil fuel burners, and programmable thermostats were added or updated. A new smaller sized electric hot water heater was installed, converting this to a renewable fuel source from current propane.

Improvements to the wastewater system were also made reducing the amount of truck wash water that must be pumped and trucked out, reducing carbon transportation emissions.

The Town’s Energy Committee plans to track and evaluate the town garage’s energy usage and wastewater to analyze savings and environmental impact. The project will be documented and showcased, as an example for other communities.
