Trane Presents Parsons Schools $20,000+

When school districts choose to partner with Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services, they benefit from not only its innovative solutions, but also from its industry knowledge and business acumen.

In December of 2015, Parsons Unified School District (USD) 503 entered into an energy savings project with Trane. The project consisted of building upgrades designed to reduce the district's annual energy usage and address deferred maintenance issues. Upgrades were completed in October 2016, and overall savings in operations, maintenance and utility expenses were projected to be approximately $90,000 annually.

In 2017, Trane applied for a 179D Commercial Buildings Energy Efficiency Tax Deduction and worked closely with the district to become qualified, inspected and approved under the terms of that program. That effort allowed Trane to pass tax savings on to the district in the amount of more than $20,000.

A local media event was held this week to celebrate the savings, and Trane Education Consultant Keven Ward proudly presented a check to Parsons School Board President, Jeff Quirin, at the gathering.
