Pike County Dispatch – Thursday, October 31, 2013 – pg. 4

Delaware Township has obtained a substantial savings in their electric bill thanks to a contract with a renewable green energy company based out of Chicago.

At last Wednesday’s meeting, Chairman Tom Ryan commended Joe DePietro for his help in lowering the electric bill $30,000 over a three year period.

He explained that before DePietro conducted an audit on township’s electric usage, the annual bill was anywhere from $16,000 to $20,000.

He said for 2012, the bill was lowered to $14,000 and for this year they expect the annual bill to come in no higher than $7,000.
