The Massachusetts School Building Authority on Wednesday will sell $142.4 million of qualified school construction bonds through negotiation.

The federally taxable subordinated sales-tax Series 2011A bonds will finance renovations to make school buildings energy efficient under a green repair program, according to an agency spokesman. The bonds are secured by a 1-cent pledge from the 6.25-cent Massachusetts sales tax after payment of the MSBA’s senior-lien dedicated tax bonds.
