BancFirst Receives DEEP Rebate Check for $2,790.56
On Wednesday, December 4th, Michelle Gumaer, Edmond Electric’s Program Coordinator, presented Mark Lisle, BancFirst President, and Michelle Ratcliff, BancFirst Senior Vice President/Chief Security Officer, with a rebate check from Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority’s (OMPA) Demand and Energy Efficiency Program (DEEP) in the amount of $2,790.56 for installing an improved geothermal heat pump system at its new branch. Tom Willis, OMPA Member Services Energy Engineer, also attended the presentation held at 9 am at the new BancFirst branch location at 1264 South Bryant in Edmond.
According to Willis, “The new BancFirst facility installed an improved geothermal heat pump system to provide year round comfort and saved 17.4 kW of electric demand compared to the installation of a conventional HVAC (heating ventilation and air conditioning) system.”
DEEP assists OMPA’s 39 member cities with their qualified customers to reduce their electric service energy demands and costs. This program provides rebates to commercial and industrial customers that implement retrofits that reduce their demand at peak times. These projects include lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, commercial food service equipment, pumps and motors.
The funds available for approved projects are determined by the OMPA Board of Directors. Funding for individual projects is determined through the submission of detailed project plans. Applicants must be a customer of an OMPA member city. For more information on DEEP, visit the OMPA website at www.ompa.com or contact Willis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BancFirst, the largest state chartered bank in Oklahoma, was founded in 1966 with headquarters in Oklahoma City.
