WEST LIBERTY – The West Liberty-Salem Local School announced on Wednesday that it has received the first of two DP&L Energy rebates in relation to its building project. The first rebate in the amount of $44,342 was in regards to the new energy saving lighting installation project throughout the building. The second rebate which should be received in the next few months in the estimated amount of $51,000 related to changes, updates and improvements made regarding the new heating ventilation air-conditioning (HVAC) project. The school district was able to accomplish these rebates by working together with Dayton Power and Light Energy Efficiency Programs, Ruscilli Construction Co. Inc. Roger D.
