The Wyandotte Public Schools District of Wyandotte, Mich.,
serves more than 4,700 students and includes six elementary
schools, a middle school, high school, administration building,
skills center and regional training center.
During the past decade, the school district has entered into
three consecutive performance contracts with Johnson Controls,
Glendale, Wis., which allow major building improvements to be
funded by the energy and operational savings created by new
equipment installed as part of the performance contracts. So far,
these contracts have provided numerous building and
energy-efficiency improvements and saved the school district $6.9
Through the performance contracts, Johnson Controls has replaced
windows and doors at the district's high school, upgraded and
enhanced the building's heating and cooling systems, and installed
building management systems at all the district's schools.
Additionally, in 2008, part of the roof system on the district's
Wilson Middle School was replaced, and a 10.8-kilowatt (kW)
photovoltaic (PV) system was installed. Johnson Controls
subcontracted Wm. Molnar Roofing Inc., Riverview, Mich., to install
the PV system.
