Tucson school awarded first energy efficiency rebate

Posted: Updated:

A Tucson Unified School District Elementary School is being awarded the first Commercial Energy Efficiency Rebate from Tucson Electric Power (TEP) Company. Brichta Elementary earned the rebate by installing energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs and about 340 new light fixtures. School officials estimate that the new lights will reduce the school's electric bills by $4,000 to $5,000 per year.

Commercial Energy Solutions offers cash rebates to commercial customers who install efficient lighting and controls, air conditioning, heat pumps, and other energy-saving equipment. More details about the incentives available to TEP commercial and residential customers can be seen by clicking
