Tri-State member cooperative Wheatland Rural Electric Association (Wheatland, Wyo.) worked closely with the school to ensure the best system was installed to meet its needs. Through the EEC program, the district received more than $7,500 in rebates for the new system, and is also realizing significant savings on its monthly electric bill. WREA’s Al Teel says the school has saved more than $7,100 since the system was installed and put to use last December.
In Chugwater, Wyo., the Platte County School District utilized Tri-State’s Energy Efficiency Credits program to upgrade the boiler that heated the elementary school classrooms to an electric thermal storage system. The new system has helped the school economically deliver consistent heat during the school day so teachers and students can focus on studies instead of trying to stay warm.
