Energy Deal Could Save Miami School District Taxpayers
Last week, Southwestern Ohio Educational Purchasing Council and DPL Energy negotiated a deal they say improves and extends an existing contract and locks in a lower energy rate through June of 2014.
The agreement affects some 80 educational institutions, including 73 local school districts. The deal is also expected to save tax payers some money.
A report in the Dayton Daily News says the agreement could save local school districts around $11.5 million in energy costs over four years.
