Energy Upgrades = Dollars Towards Students

On Monday, August 10th, Duke Energy awarded the Goshen Local School District with a Smart$aver incentive check in the amount of $130,160 for recent energy efficiency upgrades at Monday night’s School Board meeting. The district installed energy efficient LED lighting in all four of Goshen’s schools. The project will save the school district money by reducing energy costs and minimizing maintenance required on the equipment.

“Goshen Local School District has proven they are committed to going the extra mile to provide for their students,” said Warren Walker, Duke Energy Community Relations Manager. “We are proud to partner with them through the Smart$aver program to help them save crucial budget dollars.”

Duke Energy’s Smart$aver Incentive program allows businesses to receive cash for installing high efficiency lighting, HVAC, pumps and other qualifying equipment. The use of the energy efficient equipment enables businesses to improve their bottom line by reducing energy consumption. And Smart$aver incentives help lower the costs associated with the upgrades.

 “Investing in energy saving lighting and HVAC projects allows us to save taxpayer dollars that can be reinvested in the students of our school community, to make a difference in their education,” said Darrell Edwards, Superintendent, Goshen Local School District.
