Pembina County Memorial Hospital recently completed a project that involved energy efficiency upgrades to the lighting in their facility. The hospital was able to apply for rebates from Cavalier Municipal Utilities. CMU provided $8,860 in rebates to the hospital.
CentraCare Health Melrose received $5,200 from Melrose Public Utilities for energy savings it implemented throughout the center. CentraCare Health earned the incentives by participating in the Bright Energy Solutions® program, which encourages energy-efficient choices for utility customers by offering cash incentives for equipment that uses less electricity.
Three local entities have been honored by the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities for their exceptional energy efficiency efforts. Northwestern College, MOC-Floyd Valley Community Schools, and Orange City Health System were among only 10 municipal utility customers throughout the state receiving Customer Recognition Awards at the IAMU Energy Conference in Des Moines earlier this month. Bryan Gerritson, Orange City director of public works, accepted plaques on the customers’ behalf.
