CHARLESTON, S.C. (Mar. 22, 2013) – SCE&G recently presented a check to James Island Charter High School as part of the company’s EnergyWise® for Your Business program that provides incentives for SCE&G electric customers who make energy-efficient improvements to their businesses or organizations.
The $82,091 incentive check was given to James Island Charter High School for participating in the program and completing lighting upgrades throughout the school. The new lights will enable James Island Charter High School to improve energy efficiency and reduce overall consumption by an estimated 288,625 kWh annually.
“Thanks to SCE&G’s program, we’ve successfully completed facility lighting upgrades that will help greatly reduce our overall energy consumption and, ultimately, save us time and money,” said Dr. Robert Bohnstengel, principal of James Island Charter High School.
Lavita Harriford, program manager for SCE&G’s EnergyWise for Your Business program, presented the check to Paul Schwartz, chairman of the JICHS board of directors, at the school’s March 18 board meeting.
“Helping customers find ways to be energy wise is important to us, and we’re pleased that SCE&G’s EnergyWise for Your Business program will enable James Island Charter High School to benefit from increased energy savings,” she said.
