York Mayor John Brenner today announced a partnership between the city and Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls Inc. that will save the city at least $1.5 million over 15 years.

The performance contract will promote energy efficiency in municipal buildings and save money on the city’s utility bills, according to a statement issued by the city. The goal is for York to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in its largest energy-using buildings by 37 percent.

Buildings will receive lighting upgrades; weatherizing and insulation of thermostatic control valves; refrigeration innovation and control; incorporation of a high-efficiency replacement boiler; indoor air-quality improvements and direct digital control and building automation systems.

The buildings include City Hall, the Voni B. Grimes Gym, the Princess Street Center, Fire Headquarters, the York City Ice Arena and York City Sewer Maintenance Building.

Brenner said the contract shows the city is adhering to the U.S. Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement.

Johnson Controls bought York International Corp. in late 2005.
