“What I’ve learned is that before you do any project, call the co-op to see what money is available.”
That was the reaction from Jeff Jacobs of MCJ, Inc. when he saw the big presentation check for the farm’s recent decision to go energy efficient with LED bulbs in its newly constructed barn.
It also came as a nice surprise when Noble REMC Energy Advisor Brian Hawk explained even more opportunities for savings. The Ligonier farm is taking two barns out of commission, removing old incandescent bulbs in the process, something that not many people know is part of our Power Moves® rebate program for businesses.
The group headed to the barns there and then to walk through and start the rebate application process.
“Just about anything businesses can do to become more energy efficient can be turned into cash,” Hawk said. If he had one message to spread to business and home owners alike, it would be to contact the REMC before doing upgrades or construction, so he can offer them ways to save money now and over the life of their equipment. The program is expansive, so it’s hard to cover everything in promotional materials or in a first meeting, he added.
