Dayton Power & Light (DP&L) has awarded Central State University energy
efficiency rebates of $133,135.54 for a project that upgraded interior
and exterior lighting throughout the campus with more energy efficient
Central State University's energy conservation initiatives are aligned
with one of President Dr. Cynthia Jackson-Hammond's six compelling
priorities - building and maintaining an efficient and effective
institutional operation. The overarching energy conservation initiative
(i.e. roofs, lighting, mechanical systems, water fixtures, etc.) is
estimated to save Ohio taxpayers over one million dollars annually.
"DP&L is proud to award Central State University with a rebate check
recognizing their focus on advanced energy efficiency solutions that
will save energy and keep costs down," said DP&L President and CEO Derek
After Central State University selected The Brewer-Garrett Company as
general contractor for the project, Project Manager Rich Taylor applied
for an interior lighting rebate in July 2013. Additional applications
for exterior lighting and sensors/controls were made in October 2013.
As part of the project, the Greene County university upgraded more than
6,800 interior fixtures to more efficient fluorescent systems. They
replaced lighting with fixtures using low watt lamps and decreased a
number of lamps in fixtures to reduce the overall wattage. Occupancy
sensors were also installed around campus to turn off lights in spaces
not in use.
For exterior lighting, a total of 409 Light Emitting Diode (LED)
fixtures were installed to replace iefficient High Intensity Discharge
With the new and more efficient lighting on its campus, Central State
University will be saving 1,697,843 kWh per year and an estimated
$125,000 annually. "DP&L has enjoyed working with the Central State
facilities team over the last year," said Porter. "Their lighting
retrofits will not only save the university energy and money, but they
will provide the students and staff high quality, efficient lighting,
which offers the additional benefits of employee satisfaction and
productivity, as well as improved student performance."
