Public Library receives $111,000 from Duke Energy for reducing energy consumption | Business
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - On December 11, Duke Energy presented the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County with a check for $111,000 as a rebate for reducing energy consumption at the Main Library.
These savings resulted from the Library’s participation in Duke Energy’s SmartBuilding Advantage ® program. This program used building energy usage interval data and on-site assessments to identify and analyze energy efficiency opportunities at the Main Library. Following program recommendations, the Library replaced T12 lights with T8 lights and implemented improvements to its boiler plant in order to generate the highest energy savings in the shortest amount of time for the lowest cost.
“We are delighted with the energy efficiency and cost reduction that has resulted from completion of the first phase of the SmartBuilding Advantage® program,” said Kim Fender, the Library’s Eva Jane Romaine Coombe Director. “Duke Energy’s partnership has been instrumental in ensuring the initial success of this project and we are confident that we will see even greater savings and reduced energy consumption as we move forward with the next phase of this program.”
