Neshoba County Recognized for 500K savings


Neshoba County was recognized by Schneider Electric at a recent board meeting for reaching a milestone of $500,000 savings.

The Neshoba County Board of Supervisors and Schneider Electric partnered in 2017 to reduce utility costs by 34% and modernize county facilities. Through this partnership, Schneider Electric is guaranteeing over $2.4 million in energy & operational cost savings. These savings will be reinvested by the county to cover the cost of over $1.56 million in comprehensive infrastructure efficiency upgrades.

Some of the upgrades include:

  • LED lighting renovations
  • Remote monitoring & management system
  • SPF roofing system for courthouse
  • Private fiber network

The project was funded through a low interest, 15-year tax exempt lease purchase and the county received a $77,000 rebate from TVA EnergyRight Program through Central EPA and Philadelphia Utilities.
