SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - The Southaven Board of Aldermen has called a special meeting for Friday to discuss entering into an energy performance contract with Siemens Corp.
The Commercial Appeal reports (http://bit.ly/zS5jV5 ) Siemens was the only company that submitted a proposal to the city on ways to make municipal buildings more energy-efficient.
In its proposal, Siemens conducted an energy audit that showed the city it could save nearly $200,000 a year if it gets new lighting and upgrades heating and air conditioning for its 12 buildings.
If Southaven does undertake the energy improvements with Siemens, it will join DeSoto County Schools, DeSoto County's Board of Supervisors and Landers Center (the former DeSoto Civic Center) in forging energy-efficiency partnerships with Siemens.
