We monitor our energy usage real-time to
control peak usage and to monitor the impact of energy reduction
efforts. Over several years of monitoring and investments we have
lowered our energy consumption and our CO2 footprint significantly.
The entire plant and office have been
converted to high-efficiency lamp systems and we have put motion sensor
light switches in rooms that have random usage.
We recycle everything possible, including
foil waste, plastic waste, all paper and cardboard, bottles and
containers, skid packaging, and metals, eliminating landfill waste by
nearly ½ over ten years.
We have invested in the high efficiency variable frequency drive motors in all major equipment.
We have installed ceiling fans and programmable thermostats, which lower building energy usage.
We participate in and have active memberships in local sustainability organizations such as Buy Local JAX.
