Tecumseh Local Schools reduced its energy use and cut costs by more than $80,000, according to a district report released this week.
“The Tecumseh Local Schools board and administration are committed to ensuring that the taxpayers’ investment in education is managed wisely, so when we learned about the ‘On Board’ opportunity, we knew it was something we should look into,” Tecumseh Treasurer Debra Schock said.
The district saved $83,215 in the past year, she said.
“ … We also have captured an 850 percent return on the investment in the program during the first year,” Shock said.
On Board is a program offered by the Southwestern Ohio Educational Purchasing Council, Waibel Energy Systems and Dayton Power and Light. During the first phase of the program, a study identified districts that could benefit from an Energy Savings Agreement with Waibel. In the second phase, districts implemented energy conservation measures to reduce energy consumption without affecting comfort in the buildings.
“A significant source of energy use in Tecumseh Schools is air handling units,” said Joe Zimmerman, controls and integration leader at Waibel.
The program enabled the air handling units to better match airflow demands and, as a result, slow their fan speed. Additionally, Waibel implemented programming for the air handling units that prevented simultaneous heating and cooling, which Zimmerman called “a significant inefficiency.”
Electric and natural gas use was reduced from July 2014 to October 2015. That reduced the bill by more than $80,000 over the course of the year and made the district eligible for $15,000 in rebates from DP&L, an incentive the energy company offered to encourage districts to participate.

Hundreds of Republican supporters spent an afternoon Sunday listening to optimistic speeches at the annual Ice Cream Social that Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine and his wife Fran hosted at their home near Cedarville.
DeWine’s event brought nearly all the Ohio GOP statewide candidates; Senate candidate U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci, R-Wadsworth, did not attend because he had a conflict, organizers said.
DeWine told the hundreds in attendance that he was smart to ask Secretary of State Jon Husted to become his running-mate during the Republican primary, leaving him to face just the withering fire from the primary campaign of Ohio Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor. GOP voters selected DeWine over Taylor, and he and Democratic candidate Richard Cordray face each other in November.
“The politics of (joining with Husted) make a lot of sense, he said. “I don’t think I have to explain that to anybody. Instead of a bruising, horrible primary, the two of us were together — and we still had a bruising, horrible primary.”
A common theme among candidates who spoke Sunday was the fight against the opioid epidemic. Ohio Rep. Robert Sprague, R-Findlay, the GOP candidate for secretary of state, said DeWine was the right candidate to lead the fight against opioid addiction.
“We have become ground zero for the opioid epidemic,” Sprague said. “Mike DeWine is going to make us ground zero for the solution.”
DeWine’s campaign calls for a 12-step “Recovery Ohio” plan that would implement early drug prevention education in Ohio schools, expand efforts to reduce drug and cash flows from cartels and increase drug addiction treatment programs.
“We will make a difference every day,” DeWine said.
U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, whose seat is not up for election, rallied the crowd to be active this campaign season.
“The pundits may be wrong; the blue wave might not come to Ohio,” Portman said. “The only blue wave coming here is going to be a blue wave of those blue DeWine t-shirts.”

DAYTON — UPDATE @ 6:10 p.m.:
The victim of the shooting that occurred at Oxford and Windsor Avenues is currently at an unknown hospital being treated for non-life threatening injuries, said Sgt. Creigee S. Coleman.
The victim was walking down the street on a sidewalk when another man came up to him, pulled out a handgun, and shot him for some unknown reason. Witnesses say they heard a gunshot, but didn’t see anyone run away or drive off.
Crews found shell cases in the street, and Crime Scene Investigators are on scene recovering those shell casings. They hope to tie the casings to a handgun, and with that information, hopefully detectives can determine who the handgun belongs to.
“We are hoping anyone who knows anything or saw this incident can call the Dayton Police Department (937-333-2677) or the regional dispatch center (937-225-4357) and please give us some information so we can bring this crime to a closure,” said Sgt. Coleman.
A man said he was shot in the leg, but he didn’t see anyone around him in Dayton Sunday.
The man called police while in the 700 block of Oxford Avenue around 3:30 p.m. but said the incident occurred on Lexington Avenue at Windsor Avenue, said regional dispatchers.
Police do have a suspect that is described as a male in his early 20s, weighs about 140 pounds, and was wearing a black t-shirt and shorts, according to regional dispatchers.
Medics are on scene.

Vicky Benzing is known for her record as “Fastest Woman Racer” in the history of the Reno Air Races in Nevada.
Today at the Vectren Dayton Air Show she was able to complete all of her stunts, though she said Saturday she couldn’t perform her opening stunt because of lower clouds.
Today the air show is running a high show. On Saturday, only a few of the earlier acts couldn’t perform at a high level because of lower clouds. Benzing learned to fly at a young age and has been flying for over 30 years. The Californian also has a Ph.D. in Chemistry.

Bragg, North Carolina, the 16-member team’s jump aircraft is a Fokker C-31A Troopship. @daytondailynews @whiotv pic.twitter.com/6LedQRKzTA— Holly Shively (@hrshively) June 24, 2018
UPDATE @12:19 p.m.
The flag taken up by the Redline Circle of Cincinnati has dropped, and the Vectren Dayton Air Show is starting up.
Lead pilot of Redline Ken Rieder knew he was going to be a pilot almost his entire life.
He went to his first air show in Waynesville when he was 5 years old.

“My dad was driving up to Columbus for something. We saw it as we were driving by and I was excited, so he pulled in.”
At a young age, Rieder started building model planes, joined the Civil Air Patrol at 12 years old and eventually got his pilot’s license at age 21.
“From there on it was everything I could do to get flying,” Rieder said.
The Dayton Air Show is particular important to Rieder as the first large air show he had ever attended. He said he never imagined he’d be flying in the Dayton Air Show when he was younger.
Now he’s not only flying in the show, but he built the planes he and partner Ron Thocker are flying today. The team will be back later in the show.
UPDATE @11:50 a.m.
Flying acts will begin soon.
Watch live coverage of the acts here.
