COLUMBIA, S.C. (Aug. 11, 2011) – SCE&G presented a check Aug. 9 to Richland County School District Two as part of the company’s new Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Program.
The $151,829 rebate check was given to Richland County School District Two for its participation in SCE&G’s Lighting Retrofit Incentive Program. The incentive check is for upgrades made in five Richland Two schools, including Richland Northeast High School, Conder Elementary Arts Integrated Magnet School, Forest Lake Elementary Technology Magnet School and Windsor and North Springs elementary schools.
The check was presented by SCE&G Account Manager John Tringali to Dr. Stephanie Burgess, chair of the Richland County School District Two school board.
“Helping customers find ways to be energy wise and save money is important to us, and we’re pleased that Richland Two will benefit from its involvement in our new lighting program,” said Tringali.
Burgess said, “Through SCE&G’s program, Richland Two will benefit from the incentive check and facility upgrades that enable the district to increase energy savings as well.”
The incentive check was made possible as the result of SCE&G’s new EnergyWise® programs, which began in October 2010 for SCE&G’s commercial, industrial and small/medium business customers.
