CINCINNATI - Sometimes little changes can add up to big savings.

Duke Energy presented the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County with a check for $111,000 as a rebate for reducing energy consumption at the Main Library downtown.

These savings resulted from the library's participation in Duke's Smart Building Advantage program. The program analyzes energy usage data for the building and on-site assessments to identify how to improve energy efficiency.

Following program recommendations, the library replaced T12 lights with T8 lights and implemented improvements to its boiler plant in order to generate the highest energy savings in the shortest amount of time for the lowest cost.
