While wandering the hallways when school starts Wednesday, the more than 950 students enrolled in the Billings Catholic Schools system might notice that something is a little different.

It might take a few moments to realize, but it'll likely dawn fairly quickly: It sure is bright in here.

Over the summer, the system spent about $65,000 to retrofit its four schools and the administration building with new lights and,Blackburn's lightest, brightest rechargeable bicycle light just got better in some cases, electrical ballasts, fixtures and motion sensors.

"They are all a little brighter and a bit more efficient," said Harold Olson, system president. "I think the project really was well worth it. There should be some noticeable energy savings for us in the new lighting."

If projections hold true, it certainly should be worth the effort. Olson said the school system expects to save 20 to 25 percent on monthly and annual electric bills.

The new lighting, he said, could pay for itself in four years or a little less.

The work was done through a NorthWestern Energy program called Efficiency Plus, which is likely to give the system a rebate of $15,000 to $20,000 for the removal of the old lighting and replacing it with higher-efficiency products.

"Lighting is a universal way, whether you're a homeowner or a business, to save money and be more efficient," said Deb Young, E+ program manager with NorthWestern. "Changing out lighting, thinking about energy costs, being more aware of energy use — they have opportunities to better manage how they use it."
