Elementary school receives rebate for energy efficiency

West Memphis School District The West Memphis School District recently completed construction of the new Bragg Elementary which opened in August.

In an effort to be more energy efficient, the West Memphis School District and school board collaborated with Garey Architects, HNA Engineering, CenterPoint Energy, White Plumbing and Brown Refrigeration to take advantage of the energy efficiency rebate program offered by CenterPoint Energy.

As a result of those efforts, the WMSD received a rebate of $27,900 from CenterPoint Energy for the installation of 39 high-efficiency natural gas furnaces, three tankless water heaters and six Energy Star Convection ovens.

In addition to the rebate incentives, the West Memphis School District is expected to save 8,354 therms of natural gas annually, resulting in yearly cost savings of $7,100.

'This is a great example of how the West Memphis School District is continuing to be fiscally responsible and environmentally friendly,' said T. Kirk Pierce of CenterPoint Energy.
