ELG Utica Alloys was looking to reduce energy usage and take advantage of utility incentives; ELG Utica Alloys chose FES given our extensive experience operating as a liaison to Eversource Energy with other businesses looking to implement conversion measures at their facilities.
FES conducted an energy audit and identified a variety of savings for ELG Utica Alloys. A total of 1,349 lights were converted to high-efficiency LED lights. The facility’s duct collection system was retrofitted to optimize performance.
As a result of FES’s energy recommendations, ELG Utica Alloys realized an immediate energy savings of $216,305 per year. In addition, the conversion to LEDs cut down the wattage usage by over 50% per light fixture, saving ELG Utica Alloys 29% of their total annual energy costs. The company also earned a very short payback period of less than two years, which resulted in additional savings.
