Meadow Lane Elementary School
3500 E. Ash St
Goldsboro, NC 27534
Meadow Lane Elementary School was built in 1958 and serves approximately 750 Kindergarten through 4th grade students annually. The building has been renovated twice since it was constructed.
In 2003, Wayne County Public Schools entered into a strategic partnership with Energy Education Inc., an energy conservation consulting firm, to implement energy saving measures. An energy manager was hired to head the school's energy conservation efforts. Through building audits, the team identified several energy saving measures.
In 2004, all chilled-water piping was reinsulated and plumbing valves were replaced to reduce the amount of water used per flush. In 2005, the boiler was replaced with a higher efficiency model. The equipment upgrades were overseen by the school's Maintenance Department. Additionally, through routine preventative maintenance, the schools has been able to ensure that all air filters are changed on a regular basis and that all lighting and time clocks are working properly, increasing the building's energy savings.
By improving equipment efficiency and maintaining the building's energy systems regularly, Meadow Lane Elementary School earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance.
