Grant Award - Energy Savings!

Tahoma was awarded $332,325 recently in a competitive grant process through OSPI.  To qualify for the funds, our maintenance and operations staff conducted an audit of all our school facilities to determine improvements that would save the most energy and be beneficial overall.  Great job to Lori Cloud and our operations staff plus our resource conservation management team from McKinstry!  We will make about $350,000 in improvements to our buildings, having a lasting impact to save us money in the future by reducing energy costs.  Our community and voters will appreciate that we will only spend about $25,000 to make that happen, with the state grant and some energy saving rebates from Puget Sound Energy.  It's a great investment and a heck of a bargain for our district.
