Energy Optimizers, USA and E2 Host ‘Clean Energy at a Crossroads’ event in Ohio

DAYTON, Ohio -- Recently, Energy Optimizers, USA co-hosted the E2 "Clean Energy at a Crossroads" event in Dayton, Ohio. In true energy-optimized fashion, the event was held at a renovated former steam energy plant in downtown Dayton. Energy Optimizers, USA founder and E2 Midwest Chapter Director, Greg Smith and staff organized the event, along with E2 Midwest Advocate Micaela Preskill.

Amid a backdrop of controversial state bills, like Ohio House Bill 6 (HB 6), and various rollbacks of fuel and emissions standards and other such policies, E2 and Energy Optimizers, USA gathered business leaders and lawmakers together to discuss ways of moving with positive economic and environmental decisions and policies.

Ohio House Speaker Pro Tem Rep. Jim Butler, among others, participated in discussions with more than 50 local business owners and interested parties. Butler defended his stance on the clean energy rollbacks of HB 6, but was receptive to the concerns of executives.

He said hearing from individual business leaders painted the conversation in a new light, and he appreciated the role that E2 and Energy Optimizers, USA played in bringing both sides together.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown shared the same views in this video he recorded for the event ( https://youtu.be/jWUEULr3KoQ ).

In addition to productive conversations between lawmakers and business owners, Energy Optimizers, USA founder Greg Smith announced that he will personally fund scholarships for 20 E2 Emerging Leaders members every year for the next five years.

Partnership with Energy Optimizers, USA, Expected to Deliver $83,716 in Savings to Alexander Local Schools

TIPP CITY, Ohio -- Alexander Local Schools expects to save $83,716, including rebates, on utility costs in the 2019-2020 school year by partnering with Energy Optimizers, USA, to upgrade all interior and exterior lighting to high-efficiency LED systems.

Slated to begin shortly, the project will encompass the district's elementary and junior/senior high school buildings, administrative office building, and transportation garage. Alexander Local Schools Superintendent Lindy Douglas worked with Energy Optimizers, USA's Account Executive Rusty Bookman for more than two years on this project. Superintendent Douglas explains, "We are extremely excited to become more energy-efficient and save the district more money over the years to come."

The LEDs will offer up to 75 percent savings over the district's existing lighting systems, offering an almost immediate reduction in utility costs. They will also last 3 to 4 times longer, which will further reduce long-term operations and maintenance costs.

Beyond the financial savings, LED lighting is a superior option for educational settings. The quality of LED lighting is very close to natural daylight, making it easier on the eyes. Further, it offers improved light distribution and lighting levels. LEDs are also free of the hum and flicker associated with fluorescent lighting, making it an ideal system for special needs classrooms. All of these benefits are associated with improved behavior and health, in addition to increased motivation and higher test scores.

"At Alexander Local Schools, we aim to be high achieving in all aspects of our operations, from academic performance to financial management," said Ms. Douglas. "We believe that this investment in our buildings will pay dividends to our bottom line while directly supporting our evidence-based strategies to improve student outcomes and our overall school climate."

As a member of META Solutions, the district will be able to tap into the LED Lighting and Energy Savings Program through the Ohio Council of Educational Purchasing Consortia. This program will enable Alexander Local Schools to make these cost-cutting improvements at no additional expense to taxpayers while ensuring the best possible pricing.

"We take tremendous pride in our ability to provide school districts with cost-effective, turnkey solutions that make measurably better improvements to their facilities and, by extension, their overall performance," said Rusty Bookman, sales executive with Energy Optimizers, USA. "Alexander Local Schools will be able to channel the savings it gains right back into its classrooms or into other needed capital improvements-all at no cost to taxpayers. That's a victory for the school, its students and the community."

Van Wert City Schools expects to save more than $115,000 annually through partnership with Energy Optimizers, USA

TIPP CITY, Ohio -- Van Wert City Schools, in partnership with Energy Optimizers, USA, is poised to launch a sweeping energy and security improvement project that is expected to save the district more than $115,000 annually.

Starting this month, Energy Optimizers, USA, will begin work to:
* Retrofit interior lighting at all of the district's buildings with LED systems
* Retrofit exterior lighting at the High School, Middle School and Elementary School with LED systems
* Install LED lighting in the Niswonger Performing Arts Center auditorium and lecture hall, along with improved dimming and controls systems
* Install upgraded lighting and HVAC controls at select buildings
* Replace three water heaters with systems that are up to 96 percent more efficient
* Install kitchen enhancements at the High School, Middle School, Elementary School, and Early Childhood Center
* Upgrade security measures at all five buildings, including security controllers and readers.

The project is expected to wrap up by mid-August, before the start of school.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Energy Optimizers, USA, on a project that will not only improve our energy performance, but also the quality of our classrooms and auditorium," said Vicki Brunn, Superintendent. "The savings we attain from these relatively simple measures will be channeled directly into the innovative programs that make our district-and community-stand at a level above the rest."

The school district's biggest payback will come from the lighting retrofits. The new lighting will deliver savings of up to 75 percent over the existing fluorescent technology. It will also last five to six times longer than the district's current lighting systems.

The LED lighting systems will also improve the classroom experience for students and staff alike. State-of-the-art flat-panel LED systems offer sleek, low-profile lighting without the hum and flicker associated with fluorescents. The flat-panel LEDs also allow for stronger light distribution than fluorescents while the fixtures provide full dimming capabilities, features that are in high demand in educational settings.

The district will also realize significant savings from the upgraded lighting and HVAC controls. This component will include occupancy and daylight sensors to reduce wasted electricity as well as controls and programming upgrades to maximize the efficiency of the heating and cooling systems.

When combined, all of the energy conservation measures will be equivalent to removing 177 cars from the road or saving 271 acres of trees.

"Best of all-we will do this without needing to request additional funds from our taxpayers," Brunn said.

VWCS will use the LED Lighting and Energy Savings Program through the Ohio Council of Educational Purchasing Consortia (OCEPC). This program will enable the district to make these cost-cutting improvements at no additional expense to taxpayers while ensuring the best possible pricing.

"Van Wert City Schools has received well-earned accolades at the local, state and national levels for academic innovation and performance," said Greg Smith, founder of Energy Optimizers, USA. "This project is a natural reflection of the district's application of evidence-based strategies in pursuit of better results. In this case, those results will take the form of measurably lower utility bills and more funding for classrooms."

Oak Hills Local Schools Expects to Save More Than $32,000 Annually Through Lighting Upgrade with Energy Optimizers, USA

DAYTON, Ohio -- Oak Hills Local School District, in partnership with Energy Optimizers, USA, will upgrade all interior lighting to LED systems for an expected savings of more than $32,000 annually.

The improvements will be made to the district's nine school buildings, as well as the administrative and transportation offices. The new LEDs will offer up to 75 percent savings over the existing fluorescent technology. They will also last 3 to 4 times longer, which will help the district reduce long-term operations and maintenance costs.

In addition, LED lighting is easier on the eyes, which benefits students and staff alike. The quality of LED lighting is very close to natural daylight, and LEDs offer improved light distribution and lighting levels.

"At Oak Hills Local Schools, we take a very conservative approach to how we balance our operational needs against the expectations of our students, staff and community," said Jeff Brandt, Superintendent. "This project will enable us to save a tremendous amount of money on our utility bills, which we can redirect into the student programs and classroom activities that make us one of the top districts in the region. And we can do all of this without additional cost to our taxpayers."

The district used the LED Lighting and Energy Savings Program through the Ohio Council of Educational Purchasing Consortia (OCEPC). This program enables the district to make these cost-cutting improvements at no additional expense to taxpayers while ensuring the best possible pricing.

The project will also enable the district to demonstrate leadership in energy conservation. The energy savings from the lighting upgrade will be equivalent to preserving 302 acres of trees or removing 198 cars from the road.

"We are proud to partner with Oak Hills Local Schools in making these relatively simple yet incredibly cost-effective turnkey improvements to the district's lighting systems," said Greg Smith, Energy Optimizers, USA, founder. "The district will be in a position to use the energy and operational savings to fund classroom programs or additional capital improvements, all without cost to taxpayers. That's what we call win-win for Oak Hills students and the community."

St. Clairsville Public Library expects to save $8,190 annually by switching to LED lighting

TIPP CITY, Ohio -- St. Clairsville Public Library expects to save $8,190 annually and create a more reader friendly interior by partnering with Energy Optimizers, USA, to upgrade its lighting systems to LED.

Starting in September 2018, Energy Optimizers, USA, will begin transitioning all interior and exterior lighting to the higher efficiency LED system. The switch will deliver an immediate savings that will continue paying off over time.

"For a relatively small investment, we will earn a tremendous payback that we can reinvest back into the wide array of programs and resources we offer our community," said Doug Walsh, St. Clairsville Public Library director. "In addition, we believe that the improved lighting will really transform the experience of the nearly 7,000 card holders and other community members who use our facility."

LED lighting uses an average of 60 percent less energy than the systems being replaced. With a lifetime rating of 50,000 - 100,000 hours, LED lights last 3 to 5 times longer than less efficient bulbs, which will reduce the library's operations and maintenance costs. LED lighting puts out less heat, the library can expect to lower its cooling bills in the summer months.

In addition, LED lighting offers a quality of light that is very close to natural sunlight and does not have the hum and flicker associated with fluorescent lighting. This makes it easier on the eyes, which will benefit library patrons.

"LED lighting is a wise investment when it comes to cutting operational costs while boosting the user experience," said Greg Smith, Energy Optimizers, USA, president. "By upgrading its lighting, St. Clairsville Public Library will gain more control over its budget, spend fewer dollars on utility bills and provide greater accountability to taxpayers."

The library's Trustees selected to pay for the project using the Marcyl Lewis Memorial Fund, a fund donated by the Lewis family and set aside for library building improvements. The project is expected to total just over $48,000, with the total cost returned in energy savings within the first 5 years.

Meigs County Public Library upgrades to LED lighting through a partnership with Energy Optimizers, USA

TIPP City, Ohio -- The Meigs County District Public Library system has partnered with Energy Optimizers, USA, to upgrade its lighting systems to LEDs for an expected savings of more than $6,500 annually.

All exterior and interior lighting for three of the system's libraries - Middleport, Pomeroy and Racine public libraries - will make the switch to LEDs. In addition to delivering an immediate payback, the work is expected to qualify the library system for a nearly $2,000 rebate from AEP Ohio. The anticipated return on investment is 14 percent.

"We are making much-needed capital improvements to our libraries that will deliver a noticeable benefit to our users while saving a significant amount of taxpayer dollars," said Kristi Eblin, Meigs County District Public Library director. "I am confident our users and staff will be pleased with the enhanced lighting, and we will free up funds that can be used for technology and programs to serve our communities."

LED lighting uses an average of 60 percent less energy than the replaced systems.
