Saving Energy, Saving Money: SCE&G Presents Rebate Check
At the April 11, 2011 county-wide Board of Trustees meeting, SCE&G presented the Charleston County School District (CCSD) one of the first rebate checks for its new Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Program.
The $50,512 rebate check was awarded to CCSD for its participation in SCE&G’s Lighting Retrofit Incentive Program. The incentive check is for upgrades made in 18 county schools including CC Blaney, Drayton Hall, Lambs, James Island, Minnie Hughes, Murray LaSaine, Pinckney and Springfield elementary schools; Cario, CE Williams, Fort Johnson, James Island, St. Andrews and West Ashley middle schools; Baptist Hill, Wando and West Ashley high schools; as well as Clark Academy and the Bridge View Office Building.
"SCE&G is very pleased the Charleston County School District was able to benefit from our new lighting program,” said DannyKassis, General Manager for Electric Service Coordination with SCE&G. “Not only will the district benefit from this incentive check, but the facility upgrades will enable them to save on their energy consumption as well.”
Superintendent Nancy McGinley asserted that, "This is another example of the district's commitment to environmental responsibility both as an educational organization and as a business. We applaud SCE&G's efforts to encourage energy efficiency across the state in a manner that not only benefits the environment but also benefits schools and businesses."
The incentive check was made possible as the result of SCE&G’s new energy efficiency programs, which were implemented in October 2010 for SCE&G’s commercial, industrial and small/medium business customers.
