EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Vectren Energy Delivery, a CenterPoint Energy Company, presented the University of Evansville with a rebate check for more than $280,000.

The check accounts for energy savings the university incurred from participating in the company’s energy efficiency electric business incentive programs, resulting in upgrades to campus facilities in 2018 and 2019.

The upgrades resulted in a 33% reduction from building energy code requirements.

“We appreciate Vectren’s commitment to ensuring its customers have the opportunity to take advantage of energy-efficient, cost-saving incentives that also decrease our overall energy usage,” said Chad Miller, executive director of facilities management and planning at the University of Evansville. “The energy savings from these upgrades not only affects our bottom line, but also the size of our carbon footprint.”
