GRP|WEGMAN, an energy services company, recently completed an extensive lighting upgrade project for the Ritenour School District. The program involved upgrading non-LED lighting to new LED lights and fixtures as well adding several occupancy sensors across the 14 buildings in the school district.
The updated LED lighting will not only lower operational and maintenance costs but will also helped reduce energy consumption throughout all Ritenour’s buildings—saving an astounding 1.4 million kilowatt hours in total! This not only benefits the school district financially but helps contribute towards their overall sustainability and reduces their carbon footprint as well.
As a result of these upgrades on February 28, 2023, Ameren Missouri BizSavers Program representative, Jim Travis presented Dr. Chris Kilbride, Superintendent at Ritenour, with an impressive rebate check for $141,804. To celebrate their successful collaboration with the school district on the lighting upgrades, Fred Weber and Lukus Clymer of GRP|WEGMAN were in attendance for the check presentation.
"We want to thank Dr. Kilbride, Mike Smith, Dwight Lindhorst and the Ritenour School District for entrusting this project to GRP|WEGMAN" said Fred Weber, Director of Business Development. "Our whole team, from engineering to electricians, works diligently to make sure projects like these are successful. We are delighted to have been able to bring about such beneficial changes in the local community, while also helping the district save money!"
