TIPP CITY, Ohio (CitizenWire) — Energy Optimizers, USA, located in Tipp City, Ohio, is assisting the Eaton Community School District, located in Eaton, Ohio, to GO GREEN and SAVE GREEN, Money. The school district is enhancing their school facility’s HVAC systems, lighting systems, kitchen equipment, computer network systems, and air filtration systems, and implementing renewable energy projects, including solar thermal systems, to reduce their annual energy costs by more than $225,000 per year.
In addition to making these energy savings facility enhancements, the district is also implementing an Energy Education Program designed to include the students, staff and community in the project and use the project as a learning tool for the entire community.
Brad Neavin, Superintendent of Eaton Schools, stated, “We are excited to partner with Energy Optimizers, USA to significantly reduce our operational expenses while also providing our students and community an excellent educational opportunity. As an administrator, it is my responsibility to ensure that our district is a good steward of the taxpayers’ money. I feel that the Eaton Community School District is doing just that by implementing this exciting project.”
Greg Smith, President of Energy Optimizers, USA, stated, “We are extremely excited to be working with Eaton Community Schools to not only save them a substantial amount of money, but also save the environment and provide their students with a unique educational opportunity and possibly springboard interested students into the field of energy efficiency and/or the renewable energy field. We will also be providing a graduating student interested in the energy and/or engineering field with a $2,500 scholarship for the next three years.”
