Norman County East School receives rebate from Otter Tail Power Company Completes upgrade to energy-saving LED lighting  
 
     Twin Valley, Minnesota, December 13, 2019: With the help of rebates from Otter Tail Power Company, Norman County East School recently completed an energy-efficient lighting retrofit project. 
     The project consisted of replacing approximately 1100 interior lights with light-emitting diode (LED) technology. LEDs are more energy efficient when compared with other available lighting sources, using about 70 percent less energy than high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting. LEDs also have longer lives—lasting four to five times longer than HIDs—resulting in increased reliability and reduced maintenance costs. 
     Projected savings are almost 74,000 kilowatt-hours annually. “With our company’s $12,500 rebate, we project a simple payback of less than one year on this lighting project,” said Otter Tail Power Company Senior Commercial Industrial Representative Roger Garton. “Following the school’s investment in high-efficiency heat pumps for its heating and cooling needs over the past years, it’s encouraging to see continued investment in energy-efficiency measures.” 
     Otter Tail Power Company provides rebates, grants, education, special programs, and financing to encourage individuals and businesses to use electricity wisely. To learn more about recommissioning, LED lighting rebates, or other energy-saving options, visit otpco.com.

With a balanced commitment to environmental, economic, and community stewardship, the company provides electricity and energy services to approximately 230,000 people in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
