Energy Savings: The Results Are In
By Elaine Pelz on Monday, January 12th, 2015
It’s all in the numbers.
Let’s start with 2013. That’s the year we took a serious step towards reducing our energy consumption by participating in an American Electric Power savings program for businesses. As part of a roof upgrade, we installed three solar arrays on top of our company headquarters. The resulting power generation and subsequent contribution back to the community earned us official recognition from AEP Ohio for our commitment to energy efficiency and the environment.
That was nice, but the actual result is even better; we saved 221606.97 kWh or 172.11 tons of CO2 this past year. That translates to:
• 32.87 cars off the road
• Annual CO2 generation of 14.29 single-family homes
• 4010.18 tree seedlings grown for 10 years
EWI is committed to making manufacturing greener, cleaner, and more efficient through technological innovation. We’re glad we can apply this philosophy to our daily facility operations as well. Not to mention that giving back feels good, especially with numbers like these.
