The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), a subsidiary of AES Corporation, presented Kettering City Schools in Ohio with an energy efficiency rebate of $116,618 for a project that upgraded lighting in buildings across the district.
With guidance from DP&L, Kettering City Schools installed higher energy efficient lighting and occupancy sensors at each building in the district for a total savings of 823,543 kW annually. Officials said the district had already changed several internal procedures, such as having employees manually turn off lights when not in use and adjusting thermostat temperature set points seasonally.
The buildings included the transportation facility, maintenance office, J.E. Prass Elementary School, Southdale Elementary School, Orchard Park Elementary School, Oakview Elementary School, John F. Kennedy Elementary School, Indian Riffle Elementary School, Greenmont Elementary School, Beavertown Elementary School, Van Buren Middle School, Trent Arena, Kettering Middle School, Fairmont High School and the D.L. Barnes Administration Office.
