The San Juan County Fairgrounds completed a commercial lighting upgrade in collaboration with OPALCO’s Commercial Lighting Program at the end of May. Not only did the upgrade improve lighting in the main building and exterior areas, the improvements will show an energy and dollar savings immediately: 13,477 kWh and about $1,000 each year. This upgrade is also a significant part of the co-op wide effort to manage our load growth and forestall future market rates. Almost half the project costs were met with an OPALCO/BPA rebate of $9,910. To learn more about commercial rebates available, click here.
