The town was recently awarded a $247,000 Green Communities grant — just under the maximum figure a community can receive — to support several energy improvement projects. Every project that the town listed in its application received funding, according to Renewable Energy Committee chairman Neal Duffy, including $108,449 for HVAC equipment replacement at the public library, $51,674 for weatherization at Swampscott Middle School, $37,073 for insulation at Clarke Elementary School, $19,800 for insulation at the fire station, $15,826 for weatherization at the Swampscott High School, $9,135 to replace steam traps at Clarke Elementary School, and $5,221 for weatherization at the Stanley Elementary School. The projects are expected to provide $24,993 in annual utility cost savings to the town, according to Duffy.
