Catholic School Board Working on Energy Plan

Spending money to save money.

That's the plan of the Kenora Catholic District School Board as it finalizes it's five year energy plan.

Operations manager Andrew Poirier says they have 1.8 million dollars set aside for capital expenditures, but that will save the board money over the long haul.

Poirier says that's a savings of about 25 percent on their annual energy bill.

The board is looking at a number of options including LED lighting at Thomas Aquinas and more energy efficient heating systems.
