The Shelby County Commissioners selected Energy Systems Group (ESG), a leading energy services provider, to develop and implement a $4.8 million Legacy Energy Savings Project made possible by Ohio House Bill 295. The project included comprehensive infrastructure improvements to the historical Shelby County Courthouse.
The courthouse, located in downtown Sidney, Ohio, is a 135-year old 4-story block facility of approximately 39,300 square feet. Energy and cost avoidance savings of approximately $425,700 per year will cover the cost of the project over the 15-year term of the contract.
