G4: Energy

Our company energy use decreased in 2015 as a result of numerous operational initiatives. For example, at our facility in Waco, Texas, we installed a Duro Last Cool zone roof, retrofitted 50 tons of HVAC laboratory testing equipment, and improved our primary assembly line and fabrication to reduce energy consumption and improve safety. The Waco facility also implemented a lighting conservation program, installed high-efficiency outdoor lighting, and improved HVAC efficiency by installing high-efficiency water source heat pumps. Our North American HVAC business worked with GE Lighting Partners to upgrade lighting levels by 75 to 100 percent in 10 of our plants through the use of LEDs, reducing energy consumption by 10.7 billion BTUs.
