Cox Communications recently received more than $3,000 in rebates from GRU for replacing fluorescent overhead lighting with energy efficient LED lighting. The upgrade reduced Cox’s annual electric bill by more than $2,800.
As part of Cox’s national sustainability program “Cox Conserves” the Gainesville office has also installed lighting sensors, vending machine sensors and energy efficient air-conditioning units.
“Our facilities department worked with GRU to identify energy efficient options, and in doing so, was able to benefit from GRU rebate offers. Both Cox and GRU understand the importance of conserving energy,” said Devon Chestnut, Cox Florida/Georgia public relations specialist.
GRU’s certified energy managers can help business customers lower utility bills by analyzing businesses for inefficient equipment, reviewing service pricing and making customized rebate recommendations to meet individual business needs. Rebates are available for electric, natural gas, solar and water services, and can be applied to any business environment including restaurants, hotels, offices and retail outlets.
Rebates and incentives can help businesses manage energy and water use, save money, and improve efficiency. “Customized rebates allow business owners to receive up to 50 percent of the project cost for energy upgrades,” said Dan Clark, GRU business services representative. “Businesses with small offices, which use residential-sized A/C units and pool pumps, can also take advantage of our residential rebates,” he said.
