ARDMORE, Okla. — The Noble Research Institute recently received a $34,000 rebate from the Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company (OG&E) for saving 1.7 million kilowatt hours in 2018.
In 2017, the Noble Research Institute was chosen to participate in OG&E’s Continuous Energy Improvement (CEI) program. The program, administered by the energy-optimization company CLEAResult, provides resources and support to help businesses and organizations step up electricity conservation efforts and achieve significant savings in energy use and costs.
During the last two years, the Noble Research Institute has set up and conducted activities and training that engaged all employees in developing and implementing energy-saving measures. Noble set a 5 percent reduction goal in 2017 and has met it each year since.
As a result of this successful program, OG&E highlighted the Noble Research Institute in its “Growing Together” video series. The series also shares stories of other communities and commercial entities that partner with OG&E.
Noble’s mission supports sustainability of land resources and soil conservation for future generations. This permeates its activities from its laboratories to its research and demonstration farms.
