Dayton Power And Light Awards Central State University Rebate Of $133,135 For Lighting Efficiency Upgrades

Stocks in this article: AES

Dayton Power & Light (DP&L) has awarded Central State University energy efficiency rebates of $133,135.54 for a project that upgraded interior and exterior lighting throughout the campus with more energy efficient systems.

Central State University’s energy conservation initiatives are aligned with one of President Dr. Cynthia Jackson-Hammond’s six compelling priorities - building and maintaining an efficient and effective institutional operation. The overarching energy conservation initiative (i.e. roofs, lighting, mechanical systems, water fixtures, etc.) is estimated to save Ohio taxpayers over one million dollars annually.

“DP&L is proud to award Central State University with a rebate check recognizing their focus on advanced energy efficiency solutions that will save energy and keep costs down,” said DP&L President and CEO Derek A. Porter.

After Central State University selected The Brewer-Garrett Company as general contractor for the project, Project Manager Rich Taylor applied for an interior lighting rebate in July 2013. Additional applications for exterior lighting and sensors/controls were made in October 2013.

As part of the project, the Greene County university upgraded more than 6,800 interior fixtures to more efficient fluorescent systems. They replaced lighting with fixtures using low watt lamps and decreased a number of lamps in fixtures to reduce the overall wattage. Occupancy sensors were also installed around campus to turn off lights in spaces not in use.

For exterior lighting, a total of 409 Light Emitting Diode (LED) fixtures were installed to replace inefficient High Intensity Discharge (HID) fixtures.

With the new and more efficient lighting on its campus, Central State University will be saving 1,697,843 kWh per year and an estimated $125,000 annually. “DP&L has enjoyed working with the Central State facilities team over the last year,” said Porter. “Their lighting retrofits will not only save the university energy and money, but they will provide the students and staff high quality, efficient lighting, which offers the additional benefits of employee satisfaction and productivity, as well as improved student performance.”
