BVES recently gave the Bear Valley Unified School District a rebate for nearly $18,900 to help offset the costs of installing new energy-efficient CFL lighting that will cut lighting costs by nearly 50%.
In 2003, BVES and BVUSD replaced outdated school lighting from the 1950s and 1960s with more efficient technology. Ten years later, there is even better, more cost- effective lighting technology available, and it made sense for the district to upgrade.
BVES Director Harry Scarborough said his agency is committed to helping their customers save money “through programs that are good for their bottom line and the environment.”
For most nonresidential customers, lighting represents one of the biggest users of electricity. More information on BVES Commercial Energy Efficiency Programs, are available online or call the Customer Service Center at (909) 866-4678.
