Courtney Stamm worked with the DCSEU to upgrade 22 lights to LEDs at The Cheeky Puppy.
Learning about the DCSEU’s rebates for businesses definitely helped push me over the edge. When you’re spending large amounts of cash left and right during build out, it’s good to know that there might be a little bit of extra help.
Businesses like The Cheeky Puppy, an eco-conscious pet supply store in Dupont Circle, might not have the same operating hours or energy use as larger facilities, but energy efficiency is still a smart step for reducing operating costs. When the store was preparing to open in April 2014, owner Courtney Stamm learned of DCSEU rebates for businesses from an employee at a participating retailer in Woodley Park. After working with the DCSEU to upgrade 22 lights to LEDs at The Cheeky Puppy, she is expected to see savings of more than $1,200 over the life of the new bulbs.
