The idea of making Holt a more energy efficient city was brought up at Delhi Township’s April 5 board meeting.
Dick Williams from Honeywell, a contracting company, wants to make Delhi more energy-efficient by modifying furnaces, air conditioning units, and hot water tanks in city-owned buildings so that they use less energy. They also want to put in LED light bulbs in streetlights.
With these changes Williams has estimated that the city of Holt will save thousands of dollars annually with these new improvements.
“We want to make Delhi more energy-efficient, and cut the township back on unnecessary spending on energy that’s not being used,” said Williams.
No vote happened for this proposal at this meeting. The board will acknowledge this request at a later meeting.
