RIPON - Alliance Laundry Systems has earned an award for energy efficiency upgrades from Wisconsin's Focus on Energy.
The Ripon-based manufacturer of commercial laundry equipment completed four efficiency upgrades in 2016, a "banner year" for the company, according to an Alliance news release.
Focus on Energy, an energy efficiency and renewable energy program funded by utilities around the state, granted Alliance its 2017 Excellence in Energy Efficiency Award, one of 15 recipients recognized in Wisconsin.
Projects at Alliance were made possible by $62,895 in incentives from Focus on Energy.
“At Alliance, we have always placed an emphasis on conserving energy and resources both in our products and the manufacture of our world-leading products,” said Todd Kaull, Alliance Laundry Systems vice president of global manufacturing. “These improvements are an extension of that commitment. However, we could not have
made these upgrades without the assistance of Focus on Energy.”
Alliance has saved more than $250,000 from energy efficiency upgrades implemented since 2012. Since then, the company has saved more than 1.2 million kilowatt hours of energy, sparing 2,526 tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere. That's like removing 476 cars from the road, according to Alliance.
