Aging infrastructure powered by legacy fuels posed a challenge to the Sanford School District’s already tight budget. Sanford High School’s 25-year-old oil boiler system was inefficient and near the end of its life, while the diesel school bus fleet was smelly and frequently under maintenance. Inspired by a successful switch to a propane autogas bus fleet, the district decided to upgrade to new high-efficiency propane boilers. The propane boilers provide annual savings of $31,292. And because the necessary replacement project was justified through cost savings alone, the district did not have to set aside a large capital improvement budget, allowing the district to reinvest where it matters—in teachers and the classroom.
