Okeene Business Awarded DEEP Rebate

S.O.O. Trucking Company was presented with a $140.94 rebate check by the Town of Okeene and the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) on Monday morning.

The rebate was awarded in conjunction with OMPA’s Demand and Energy Efficiency Program (DEEP) after the installation of new energy-efficient lighting that reduced the energy demand at the trucking company, located at 214 S. Main St. in Okeene, by 1 kilowatt, saving an estimated 2,795 kilowatt hours of energy each year.

DEEP assists OMPA’s 39 member cities with their qualified customers to reduce their electric service energy demand and costs. The program provides rebates to commercial and industrial customers that implement retrofits that reduce their demand at peak times. The projects include lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, commercial food service equipment, pumps and motors.

Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) is a joint-action agency created for the purpose of providing an adequate, reliable and affordable supply of electrical power and energy to Oklahoma’s municipally owned electric systems. The Authority presently serves 39 municipally owned electric systems in Oklahoma. As a consumer-owned public power entity, OMPA is owned by the member cities it serves.
