)-- Albert Bros., Inc. will reduce their electricity consumption by more than 80,004 kilowatt-hours annually- $12,120.00 annually. This is equivalent to the environmental impact of saving 19 acres of trees or supplying power to 108 homes. In honor of this accomplishment and for demonstrating leadership in the business community, they received the Northeast Energy Efficiency Council- CT Chapter’s Environmental Stewardship Award on October 24th.
Albert Bros., Inc. accomplished these savings through participation in the Energy Opportunities Program. This is one of the innovative energy programs offered through Energize Connecticut working with the energy experts at Connecticut Light & Power. Through the Energy Opportunities Program, companies can save energy and reduce their monthly utility costs by replacing still-functioning equipment with more energy efficient options. To help pay for the upgrades, attractive zero-percent or low-interest rate financing is available.
Traver IDC (Waterbury, CT) performed the upgrades which included the upgrading of motors, interior light fixtures, and exterior lighting. Jack Traver, President of Traver IDC, commented, “It is very rewarding to deploy Energize Connecticut programs in such a meaningful way by helping Albert Bros., Inc. and other Connecticut manufacturers battle the high cost of energy, remain competitive in a global marketplace, and most importantly continue to manufacture in Connecticut.”
Funding for the Energize Connecticut energy efficiency programs was established in 1998 to address Connecticut’s increasing energy needs. A small charge on customer utility bills provides the funds that support programs for homeowners and renters, small and large businesses, and state and local governments. Governor Malloy and state legislators were instrumental in working with the energy efficiency industry to protect this funding.
“The benefits are tremendous for the consumers and the environment, and using the dollars from the Energize Connecticut initiative provides a clear example of how businesses and organizations can employ environmentally sound practices without sacrificing the bottom line,” stated Dave Leishman, Co-Chair of the Northeast Energy Efficiency Council- CT Chapter.
The Northeast Energy Efficiency Council- CT Chapter is a business association of the energy efficiency industry. NEEC-CT was formed to help member companies grow and prosper in a challenging environment. They provide a voice for the industry to support and expand business opportunities for efficiency companies.
