Catching up with the Salvation Army

The Salvation Army in New Albany is a great community organization that helps so many people in Southern Indiana. Energy savings from their EECBG project will allow them to continue on with their mission and hopefully touch additional people’s lives.

Their building had seen better days and was extremely inefficient. With their EECBG grant of $100,000 (of which they matched with $100,000), the Salvation Army was able to install new insulation for their roof, install a new heating system with three new heaters, retrofit 46 lights, and install 26 skylights. The purpose of this project was to substantially reduce energy consumption, lower maintenance and capital costs and lower the environmental impact of the facility.

Their goals have been met -- so far, they've saved 131,200 kWh and 1,0655 MMBTUs.

Great job, and thank you for your efforts to improve your community!

The Salvation Army of New Albany received an Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant (EECBG), a program of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.  EECBG is funded through the U.S. Department of Energy and is administered by the Indiana Office of Energy Development.
