Washington Electric awards lighting rebate to Noble Local Schools

Jack Bragg, center, former general manager of Washington Electric Cooperative, presented a $14,985 rebate check for lighting efficiency improvements to Noble Local School District Treasurer/CFO Trenda Rice and Superintendent Dan Leffingwell.

Washington Electric Cooperative has awarded the Noble Local School District a $1,485 rebate through the Commercial and Industrial Lighting program.

The district’s project focused on interior lighting at Shenandoah High School and the Shenandoah Middle School gymnasium. Earlier this year, the cooperative awarded the school district a $1,825 rebate for upgrades performed on the campus’ exterior lighting.

Noble Local Schools partnered on this project with Energy Optimizers USA (EOU), an Ohio-based company that specializes in developing, engineering, and implementing energy efficiency and energy saving projects for educational, governmental, and commercial customers.

“Noble Local School District’s Board of Education and administrative team are very excited to once again have the opportunity to partner with Washington Electric and Energy Optimizers,” said Trenda Rice, Noble Locals Schools’ treasurer/CFO. “While improving the educational experience of our students by providing better lighting was the main goal, the cost savings further validate that we take our fiscal and environmental responsibilities very seriously.”
