Early this week, Hilliard City Schools was presented with a rebate check in the amount of $111,622.42 from AEP Ohio’s Business Incentives program following an energy conservation program in conjunction with Bruner that began in early 2011.
The Hilliard City Schools project included the following energy efficiency measures:
- 40-ton chiller replacement at Scioto Darby Elementary
- T8 high-output, high bay lighting retrofits in 22 gymnasiums across the district
- Occupancy lighting sensors in all gyms and some cafeterias
- Parking lot lighting retrofit to inductive lamps
The projects represent an annual electricity savings of 728,000 kilowatts per year and an annual cost savings of $58,242.64.
To date, Hilliard has received the largest rebate check of any school district in Ohio. Following closely behind was Dublin City Schools, another project Bruner was fortunate enough to be part of, with more than $90,500.

As you can see, the benefits are clear.
