TIPP CITY, Ohio, Dec. 8, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Rittman Exempted Village School District expects to save at least $15,000 on utility and related maintenance costs annually by partnering with Energy Optimizers, USA, to improve energy efficiency at its Board of Education building.

The district is partnering with Energy Optimizers, USA, to:
* Replace interior lighting with more efficient lamps and remove unneeded lamps to cut waste
* Replace exterior lighting with LED technology to improve energy efficiency while enhancing building safety, appearance and security
* Replace the building's aging boilers with more energy-efficient models
* Enhance the building's temperature controls to improve energy conservation.

The project is nearly complete and will be wrapped up by in the near future. Projected energy savings are guaranteed for three years, and the payback for the upgrades is just under 10 years. Funding is provided through the Ohio School Facilities Commission's House Bill 264 program, enabling the district to make these cost-cutting improvements at no expense to taxpayers.

"We are always looking for ways to save money and stretch taxpayer dollars within our school operations," said Superintendent Jon Ritchie.

The energy efficiency gained by the district will also be equivalent to saving 138 acres of trees or taking 90 cars off the road.

"This project will improve the environment for the student body and the faculty while producing significant energy savings," notes Greg Smith, President of Energy Optimizers, USA. "We look forward to helping Rittman Schools meet their fiscal goals and assisting them in championing a great idea -- the idea that a 'greener,' more sustainable means of energy use is not only responsible and practical, it is preferable."
