Everest rewarded $94,000 for energy-saving measures
Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) along with Focus on Energy, Wisconsin’s statewide program for energy efficiency and renewal energy, recently awarded D.C. Everest School District $94,339.55 of incentives to assist with the costs of implementing several energy-saving measures.
D.C. Everest, with the assistance from WPS and Focus on Energy, installed efficient steamers, refrigerators, high speed boilers and occupancy lighting in seven of their district buildings. As a result of the improvements, the district is anticipating saving over 45,465 Kilowatt hours and over 117,552Therms within the first year. David Voss, Focus on Energy Representative stated, “They displayed great project management and were able to maximize their energy savings through the Focus on Energy and WPS programs and partnerships.”
I’m impressed with the school district’s commitment to making energy saving upgrades,” said Fred Westphal, WPS Account Executive. “For several years now, they have partnered with WPS and Focus on Energy to identify savings opportunities and to take advantage of incentives like the multiple project bonus program that WPS offers at most of their facilities.”
On Friday, November 22 David Voss and Fred Westphal presented Dr. Kristine Gilmore, Superintendent of Schools, the $94,339.55 check. Jeff Belott, D.C. Everest Supervisor of Maintenance and operations, is delighted with the outcome of the projects, “I am pleased that the public can see what is being done at D.C. Everest to reduce energy usage. With the support of the Everest School Board, we have been able to make necessary upgrades in our buildings. These energy efficient upgrades and money saved will allow allocation of more funds directly to the classroom.”
