BP Solar International has cut its greenhouse gas emissions and electricity costs through use of energy saving technologies engineered and manufactured by Energy Automation Systems, Inc., (EASI), installed back in 2006/7.
“EASI’s equipment has a direct effect on our environmental impact by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases,” said Jeffrey Brelsford, North American customer service manager of BP Solar International.
“BP is making an environmental contribution through the manufacture of our solar panels, the reliability of which is the best in the industry and essential to delivering the lowest lifetime costs to our customers.”
Brelsford also noticed that his facility’s energy bills fell 8%, based on a 6MW site after EASI technologies were installed. More than 500 people are employed in the facility, which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“We began calculating the greenhouse gas reductions for our customers in 2008,” said Joe Merlo, Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) chief executive officer said. “The formula involves determining the types of fuel used to power their operations and calculating both the cost savings in kilowatt hours and the greenhouse gas reductions based on those lower numbers.”
