On Wednesday, November 6th Groton Utilities/Bozrah Light and Power presented Optimus Senior Living with a rebate check in the amount of $53,560 as part of Groton Utilities’ energy conservation program. Elmbrook Village in Bozrah, owned and run by Optimus Senior Living, is a senior living community that features independent living, assisted living and memory care support. Elmbrook recently completed a LED installation project, for which they applied and were granted the rebate from Groton Utilities/Bozrah Light and Power.
“Elmbrook Village, which is brand new, has over 1,400 light fixtures,” said Groton Utilities Energy Engineer Hollis McKee, “and these LED light installations reduce their energy consumption by 60% compared to conventional fluorescent lighting. It really is a great thing.”
Groton Utilities encourages customers and businesses to embrace energy conservation and offer a number of rebate programs to assist customers and businesses in making the switch to energy-conscience technologies.
At the presentation were (from left to right) Dean Forier (Elmbrook Village Maintenance), Ron Gaudet (Groton Utilities Director), K. Christian Boyson (Optimus), Keith Hedrick (Mayor, City of Groton), Frederick Mielke (Optimus Owner), Glenn Pianka (Bozrah First Selectman), William Ballinger (Bozrah First Selectman).
Groton Utilities offers residential and business customers a variety of energy conservation programs to help reduce energy costs. These programs are designed to help people reduce energy costs by promoting the installation of more energy efficient lighting, air conditioning, heat pump water heaters, electric motors, and refrigeration solutions.
In addition to these programs Groton Utilities has started a pilot rebate program for the acquisition of plug in electric cars and level 2 chargers. Read more about Groton Utilities energy conservation programs on the company website (www.grotonutilities.com) under the Energy Conservation section.
