ACHF Arts Access
Goal 1) Granite Area Arts Council will replace 16 windows on the upper level of the K.K. Berge Building. Goal 2) Decrease our energy costs through increased energy efficiency. We will measure the energy savings through a comparison of our monthly utility bills. This savings will be calculated by using the figures from the 2014 fiscal year and comparing them to 2015 by creating a matrix as our evaluation tool.
Base year natural gas costs for 2014 were $1,524. Following the completion of the project, 2015 actual natural gas costs decreased to $1,246 in 2015 and are estimated to be approximately $1,033 for 2016. The other positive outcome involved rental income, which increased from $6,725 in the 2014 base year and increased by more than 40% in 2015 to $9,650 and is projected to increase again in 2016 to $10,500. The reduced costs and increased income will increase the funds available for arts programming and have a significant impact in the area.
