CHARLESTON, S.C. (April 11, 2011) -- SCE&G today presented to the Charleston County School District one of the first rebate checks for its new Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Program.

The $50,512 rebate check was given to the Charleston County School District for its participation in SCE&G’s Lighting Retrofit Incentive Program. The incentive check is for upgrades made in 18 county schools including CC Blaney, Drayton Hall, Lambs, James Island, Minnie Hughes, Murray LaSaine, Pinckney and Springfield elementary schools; Cario, CE Williams, Fort Johnson, James Island, St. Andrews and West Ashley middle schools; Baptist Hill, Wando and West Ashley high schools; as well as Clark Academy and the Bridge View Office Building.

The check was presented by Danny Kassis, SCE&G general manager for electric service coordination, to Michael Bobby, chief financial and operations officer with the Charleston County School District.

“SCE&G is very pleased the Charleston County School District was able to benefit from our new lighting program,” – said Kassis. “Not only will the district benefit from this incentive check, but the facility upgrades will enable them to save on their energy consumption as well.”

The incentive check was made possible as the result of SCE&G’s new energy efficiency programs, which implemented in October 2010 for SCE&G’s commercial, industrial and small/medium business customers. There are seven current offerings with incentives, including Lighting, LED Traffic Signals, New Construction Lighting, HVAC Unitary, HVAC Chillers, HVAC Variable Frequency Drives and Food Service and High Efficiency Equipment.

Customers who are interested in learning more about these programs and how they may benefit from them can visit or call 1-877-784-SCEG (7234) toll-free.
