BROCKVILLE – A city coffee shop is being recognized by a provincial utility for saving energy when it comes to lighting.
Hydro One presented Richard’s Coffee House with a plaque Monday for being customer number 45,000 in its Small Business Lighting program – part of Save on Energy. The program gives up to $2,000 in lighting incentives and upgrades.
Owner Sam Rawas called the program a “triple win” for his business with more lighting, less energy use and lower monthly bills. It’s estimated the retrofits from incandescent to LED light bulbs are netting the business over $1,000 a year in savings.
Brockville Mayor David Henderson was also there for the presentation at the shop at 234 King Street West.
