Featured Energy Project

Ecofficient recently completed a lighting project for McGriff Industries with help from Cullman Power Board and EnergyRight Solutions for Business. By replacing metal halide, T12 fluorescent, and incandescent fixtures, the company increased by 10 times the light in the aisle of this tire warehouse and increased light for each workstation. “The plant is much brighter than before we started the project and more efficient. The workers noticed the difference the first day and appreciated the change, ” said Jim Osborne, General Manager, Retreads. The company received an incentive from Cullman Power Board and TVA, and will reduce its demand by 43 kW and its energy consumption by 240,000 kWh annually, for a significant annual savings.
