Charging station installed at Tiffin-Seneca Public Library

Station provided by grant from NOPEC

TIFFIN, OHIO – July 8, 2020 – A new charging station was installed at the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library on June 18. The portable station is located in the Teen section of the library, and includes several charges for various phone models as well as wireless charging pads. It was obtained through a grant from NOPEC, and is valued at $3,495. 

When the opportunity for the charging station became available, Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership worked with the City of Tiffin to determine the best location and type of equipment would best serve the community. It was determined that TSPL would be the best fit for the project.

“For many people, mobile devices are the gateway to the Internet once they leave the library. We are thrilled to make this charging station available to our patrons thanks to NOPEC’s generosity. Working to keep people connected to ideas, information, and each other is why we’re here, and this station will help us do just that.” Matthew Ross, library director at Tiffin-Seneca Public Library.

The City of Tiffin has been a NOPEC member since 2014.

NOPEC is a non-profit group of over 235 communities that negotiates lower utility rates. As Ohio’s largest governmental energy aggregator, NOPEC buys gas and electricity in bulk to help lower consumers utility bills. Since 2001, NOPEC has saved Ohio consumers hundreds of millions of dollars on their energy costs.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz commented, “NOPEC is a great partner, and we are excited that they were able to provide this gift to the City of Tiffin which will benefit many people in the community and those using the services at Tiffin-Seneca Public Library.”
