National Grid energy-efficiency financing drives savings


Groom Energy will perform building energy assessment and implement multi-measure energy-efficiency retrofits at two facilities in Massachusetts.

Following comprehensive building energy audits and assessments at the Atlas Box facilities, Groom Energy has already completed upgrades in compressed air, LED lighting and vending machine energy controls. The next upgrades include such HVAC-related improvements as adding variable frequency drives to ventilation systems and intelligent controls for packaged rooftop units.

The upgrades will reduce the total energy consumption at the two Atlas facilities by 55 percent.

National Grid's energy-efficiency rebates and On-Bill Finance program support the upgrades.

"Sustainability is a core principal of our corporate mission at National Grid which is why we are committed to promoting and offering programs that will help our customers save money while reducing their carbon footprint," said Marcy Reed, president, National Grid. "Atlas Box will reduce their energy usage by more than half as a result of these energy efficient upgrades, which is significant. We're proud to partner with them and help defray the costs through program incentives that will make the project a reality."
