HALTON HILLS, ON Thanks to its partnership with Halton Hills Hydro, ISPA Woodworking has received more than $42,000 for three energy efficiency projects
ISPA Woodworking is a Georgetown company that manufactures quality custom millwork and store fixtures for major retailers throughout North America.
In 2013, the company worked with Halton Hills Hydro to complete retrofits of their interior lighting systems. The retrofits reduced electrical consumption by close to 120,000 kWh/year.
Replacing the plant’s air compressors with more efficient models was the next successful retrofit. The project qualified for funding incentives totaling 50 per cent of the installed cost of the system. Electricity savings of almost 275,000 kWh a year will pay for the project in less than a year.
Combined, ISPA received more than $42,000. The funding comes from Halton Hills Hydro under the Ontario Power Authority’s (OPA) saveONenergy program.
“Conservation and demand management is not only good for the environment, but it makes good business sense. Companies such as ISPA receive incentive payments that help offset the initial installation costs of retrofits and the annual energy savings have a direct positive impact on the company’s bottom line,” said Art Skidmore, President & CEO, Halton Hills Hydro.
Stu Wilson, Health and Safety Coordinator at ISPA added, “ISPA believes that showing leadership in the fields of environmental and social responsibility pays huge dividends in the long run; not only in terms of direct cost savings, but also taking into account the value added to the community at large, by acting as responsible role models for future generations of business leaders”.
Halton Hills Hydro offers a variety of energy conservation programs for both residential and commercial customers and encourages participation in the saveONenergy programs. Visit www.haltonhillshydro.saveonenergy.ca
