But the big check Cleveland Utilities presented to them Wednesday was a result of their tremendous energy savings.
Tom Wheeler says
Wheeler is the CEO of Cleveland Utilities and says getting energy back is best done through energy efficiency and conservation.

Marty Martin says
Martin is the General Manager of the Cleveland-based plant and estimates the Southern Containers will save a hundred thousand dollars a year on their electric bill.
