Vectren presents energy savings check to EDS

This summer, Evansville Day School underwent an energy savings audit, performed by Vectren partner company Nexant.  Day School then utilized two energy efficiency programs to upgrade lighting throughout the school.  At the completion of the Business Custom Program, the school's outdated 112 fluorescent bulbs were replaced with 26 high efficiency lighting fixtures and LED bulbs.  The end result has provided the school with not only brighter lighting, but a net cost that will pay for itself in just over one year.
