Firestone Building Products’ Bristol, Conn., manufacturing facility has been recognized by the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) as a 2014 Northeast Business Leader for Energy Efficiency. The Northeast Business Leaders for Energy Efficiency recognition program highlights the accomplishments of organizations that are participating in energy efficiency programs across the region.
In 2013, the facility underwent energy efficient renovations that amounted to nearly 900,000 kWh in electric savings, according to the company. When added together, this amount of electricity can power more than 100 Connecticut households for a year, according to the company.
“I’m proud that the energy efficient renovations at our Bristol, Conn., facility were recognized by NEEP,” says Clint Baty, Bristol plant manager. “The energy reduction improvement project demonstrates our focus on sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint.”
