Rebates allow for new stadium lighting
Muenster Independent School District recently used $6,300 in TXU GreenBack rebates to replace stadium lighting with energy-efficient LEDs, TXU Energy announced in a press release. The upgrades increase light intensity at Hornet Stadium by three times and come with cost savings to the district, according to the release.
“There are few places where savings can actually be found with the increasing costs in education,” Muenster Superintendent Steven Self said in the release. “We appreciate the assistance from TXU Energy to help extend the life of our fixtures and bulbs and achieve energy savings.”
The stadium lighting project was completed in time for players to enjoy brighter games during the 2019 football season.
The TXU GreenBack program launched in 2009, offering rebates to government and large commercial utility customers for energy efficiency projects.
