You might call it an enlightening experience, Phillips Office Solutions having just been named to the E-power Energy-Smart Business Honor Roll.
We can shed some light on how it came about.
Working with our electrical contractor, SECCO Inc. of Camp Hill, we came up with a list of exterior lighting projects at our headquarters on Fulling Mill Road, Middletown. These projects -- completed last summer -- included our building facade, our parking lot, even our flag pole.
Rebates offered by PPL Electric Utilities Corp. reduced our investment to just below $15,000. Because these new fixtures are more energy efficient, we’re reducing our annual electricity demand by 35,000 kilowatt-hours.
What does this mean for our bottom line? We’ll save $3,800 annually in electricity costs, and we’ll recoup our investment in approximately four years.
Greg Dudkin, president of PPL Electric Utilities, recognized Phillips’ achievement in a letter, which concluded with these words:
Being energy-efficient not only has positive implications for your bottom line and operating margins, it also demonstrates the kind of awareness and commitment that will lead our communities to better energy and environmental practices.
