Dordt University was presented with a $11,982 rebate check from Sioux Center Municipal Utilities for choosing energy-efficient technology in their facilities in Sioux Center.

The energy rebates are part of the Bright Energy Solutions program, which offers cash incentives to business and residential energy customers of community-owned utilities who chose to implement or utilize qualifying energy-efficient equipment.

“Dordt University continues to pursue choices that help reduce our community’s peak energy demand, which helps keep energy costs lower for us all,” says Josh Dorhout, who administers the Bright Energy Solutions program at Sioux Center Municipal Utilities. “Through these choices, they will also save energy and money long-term.”

Dordt staff chose energy-saving technology in the university’s new nursing education center, theatre arts building, and other spaces, including LED trougher lighting, LED high bay lighting, and occupancy sensors.

“Dordt University values stewardship, both financial stewardship – using money wisely – and environmental stewardship – caring for God’s creation. The opportunity to install energy-efficient lighting in new buildings is one way of showing our commitment to stewardship. We are thankful to the City of Sioux Center for providing a rebate so Dordt can reach this goal,” says Arlan Nederhoff, director of capital projects at Dordt University.
