Lake Park Public Utilities rebates R&R Transportation for efficiency

Lake Park Public Utilities presented R&R Transportation a check in the amount of $2,621 as part of the Bright Energy Solutions® rebate program. This program encourages energy efficient choices by offering cash for the purchase of qualifying equipment. The ultimate goal of this program is to help customers save money on their electrical usage and help control the use of a valuable resource.  

When R&R Transportation was in the planning phase, owner Cory Christianson decided he wanted to use energy-efficient lighting and partnered with his electrician and the City of Lake Park to make this happen. He chose to use a higher quality T8 light bulb in their office building, and the newest technology in lighting in their wash bay and warehouse facility. These energy-saving choices have an estimated savings of over 90,000-kilowatt hours annually and reduce their peak usage by 10 kilowatts each month. The electric savings alone is enough to provide electricity to eight homes a year!

Lake Park Public Utilities offers no-cost walk-throughs for their commercial customers to help them understand their electrical rates, usage, and ways to reduce their consumption.  These visits provide valuable data on how customers are able to reduce their utility bills for many years to come.  To apply for cash incentives, customers must complete an application form and provide the required documentation to Lake Park Utilities.  The utility currently offers cash rebates to qualified customers for many commercial and industrial programs. Additionally, the City of Lake Park has rebates available for residential appliances, light bulbs, and heating and cooling equipment and air conditioner tune-ups.

Bright Energy Solutions is offered to customers of participating municipal utilities who are members of Missouri River Energy Services.  For more information about the Bright Energy Solutions® incentives, or to schedule a business energy-conservation walk-through, contact the utility at 218-238-5532, or visit
