Pipe extruder JM Eagle expects to save 400,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year as a result of investing in new high-efficiency lighting at its Conroe, Texas, plant.
The Los Angeles-based company, which ranked No. 1 on Plastics News' most recent survey of North American pipe extruders, went through the project with Entergy Texas Commercial Solutions Program.
Efficiency is a key element of our future, and we are committed to setting a positive example in the business community, said JM Eagle President and CEO Walter Wang, in a news release.
The combination of lower energy bills, improved facilities and Entergy incentives made investing in this project an easy decision.
Entergy Texas is a no-cost program that provides technical and financial support to help businesses identify and implement energy efficiency upgrades.
