Consumers Energy Presents Energy Efficiency Incentive Check to Bullock Creek School District

Midland, Mich. Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Consumers Energy last night presented a $126,360 Business Solutions incentive rebate check to Bullock Creek School District for participating in the utility’s energy efficiency program for commercial and industrial customers.

Bullock Creek School District received the rebates for energy efficiency upgrades at its middle school, elementary schools, and high school to reduce electric and natural gas consumption. As a result, the school district will save about $97,000 in energy annually.

The incentives are offered under the Clean, Renewable, and Efficient Energy Act of 2008.

“Consumers Energy’s goal is to provide a reliable, cost-effective supply of energy to power Michigan’s future,” said Thomas Shirilla, business account manager for Consumers Energy. “We’re pleased to work with Bullock Creek School District to provide these incentives which help our customers reduce demand on energy and realize significant cost savings.”

Bullock Creek Elementary, Floyd Elementary, Pine River Elementary, Bullock Creek Middle School, and Bullock Creek High School all received energy saving upgrades.

“Receiving these incentives to upgrade our facilities and provide energy cost reductions year after year lets us apply more resources to our main mission, providing high-quality education to our community,” said Charlie Schwedler, Bullock Creek superintendent of schools. “The incentive program has resulted in a true win-win for our district.”
