Alachua County Will Purchase High Tech Energy Saver
They are going to spend money, to make money.
Alachua County Commissioners have voted to spend $90,000 on a new high tech pilot program.
A digital control system will be installed in the county administration building to save energy costs by shutting off non-essential electronics that aren't being used.
544 devices in the building will be controlled by the system, including lights, printers and microwaves.
Facilities workers estimate they will use at least 10% less energy with the system.
