East Central University in Ada, OK, has received an incentive check of $297,437 from Oklahoma Gas & Electric, according to The Ada News.
The incentive was from the utility’s Schools and Government Efficiency (SAGE) program. The story says that the SAGE program provides organizations with no-cost facility improvement recommendations. It also offers benchmarking services, energy master planning and financial incentives, the story says.
The heart of ECU’s participating in SAGE was the installation of LEDs across its campus, which is expected to cut almost 2 million kWh of energy use. It will save ECU $158,000 in energy costs annually, the story said.
Duke Energy and Duke University this spring agreed to build a 21 MW natural gas-fed combined heat and power (CHP) plant on the school’s campus.
