Greater Clark energy program saves big bucks



Dykiel said it just makes sense to give departments the revenue they generate.

“Anything Gus does, I’m happy with if he can save me money,” Dykiel said. “He aggressively watches our utility costs and is responsible for buying propane for the two schools that use it in New Washington.”

Dykiel said he and Luckert are on the lookout for other ways the district can save money on energy, such as retrofitting equipment with propane instead of gasoline and looking at partnerships with other government entities to generate some revenue.

Dykiel said he’s thrilled with the cost-avoidance measures the program has taken and hopes to see more in the future.

“Whatever he can bring back as a rebate or grant coming back to the school corporation, we hope to spend on energy saving measures to further reduce our gas and electrical consumption,” Dykiel said. “Anything he can do to reduce the impact on our budget to increase the efficiency in our energy consumption is a good thing.”
