Western Sugar receives a big check for their energy saving efforts

Posted: Updated:

The Western Sugar Cooperative in Scottsbluff's hard work is paying off.

A new ventilation process is being used for sugar beet storage by Western Sugar.

And with the new process brings a reward.

Today the Nebraska Public Power District presents the company with a $12,000 EnergyWise Rebate check for their installation of the new ventilation system.

The new system reduces electric use as a part of the Utilities EnergyWise Incentive Program.

Terry Rajewich says she's happy to present the check to Western Sugar.

"It's good to give the funds away and it shows they're being efficient with their use of energy and it helps the overall state of Nebraska."

Western Sugar's harvest is complete and they say they're excited to save energy again next year with their new system.
