ZANESVILLE, OHIO-Â Johnson Controls presented an opportunity to the commissioners earlier on Thursday about how the county could save money on their utility bills.
Johnson Controls works to create intelligent buildings, efficient energy solutions, integrated infrastructure and next generation transportation systems to help improve cities and communities.
Mark Weiss, Accounts Executive, Johnson Controls, said that they would inspect facilities across the county and see how they could help save the county money by converting to better energy resources.
“If the commissioners decide to go through with us then we would want to help them upgrade their lighting infrastructure, water conservation, facility needs like windows, etc.,” said Weiss. Â “Those improvements would be driven by the savings the county would have on their utility dollars that they are already spending.”
Weiss said that the county would take the money that they would save and put it towards a project in the county that Johnson Controls would contract out on what he calls a “neutral budget approach”.
“The project is driven from energy savings and the facility improvements are chosen by the customers, so the customer definitely decides on what they need to have done.”
The commissioners will meet again andÂ decide whether or not to go forward with Johnson Controls in the near future.
