The main barriers with school districts are financial restrictions.  The district has a limited capital budget to function every fiscal year.  It is usually impossible to roll out a large capital project without requesting for every possible aid that is available, which could be a long-winded process.  Johnson Control's ability to take that burden off the districts shoulder and offer them financing options is a viable solution to the school board.  The financing cost is a limited dollar amount that they can allocate into their fiscal year budget.  Most of the time the savings achieved usually pays for the cost.  


Article in a local newspaper, The Village Herald, about the ENERGY STAR label award.


"By maximizing the operating and energy efficiency of all three districts school buildings, we are reducing utility and maintenance costs and providing students and teachers with a safe, clean, comfortable learning environment."
-- James Ristano, East Rockaway Public Schools
