Melrose PUC Presents Stearns Electric With Rebate

The Melrose Public Utilities recently presented Stearns Electric Association with a check in the amount of $8,466. Melrose Public Utilities participates in a program known as Bright Energy Solutions, which encourages energy efficient choices for utility customers by offering cash incentives for equipment that uses less electricity.

Stearns Electric visited with staff at the utility in early 2012 to explore rebate potential to trade out some less efficient lighting for more efficient alternatives. Now that their retrofit is complete, they will save nearly 115,480 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year and reduce their electrical demand by 24.6 kilowatts per month.
