A Wyoming electric cooperative worked with leaders of a well-known resort community to help improve efficiency at a wastewater treatment plant.

A series of energy-efficiency upgrades to the facility is expected to save the city of Jackson $64,000 annually in electricity costs. The co-op’s consumer-members will also save money.

“The town sewer plant is the largest energy consumer in Teton County,” said Jackson Mayor Mark Barron. The mayor recently accepted a rebate check for $457,711 on behalf of the city from Lower Valley Energy.

“To earn a nearly half million dollar rebate from LVE is exceptional,” said Barron.

The co-op’s energy auditors worked with the city’s public works staff for a year to develop a list of equipment and facilities upgrades designed to reduce the plant’s energy consumption by 1.8 million kilowatt-hours a year.
