GIGAENERGIE installs a donation in kind of 4.500 €
The Rote Erde animal shelter has been completely illuminated with LEDs since Thursday, November 17th: The Rheine Animal Welfare Association had asked the energy specialist GIGAENERGIE AG from Neuenkirchen to modernize the lighting. Board member Kai de Buhr estimated the financial outlay, came up with 4.500 €, and spontaneously decided: “We will replace all existing light sources with energy-efficient LED lights and cover all material and installation costs.”
Ellen Stegemann, managing director of the animal protection association, was now happy to accept this donation in kind. “Mr de Buhr often organizes events for a good cause, but we didn’t expect that,” she said after successfully installing the LED lights in the animal shelter. This saves the animal shelter around 50 percent of its lighting energy costs. That’s around 4,000 kWh per year and currently around 1.500 € per year, which can be used elsewhere. “Animal protection is education for humanity, Albert Schweitzer said,” quotes Kai de Buhr, “so donations for animal protection are just as legitimate as for supporting people.” In addition to the donation in kind, the company sponsors a dog.
