While their football team was out winning the NFC’s North Division championship, the Green Bay Packers energy team, with the support of Focus on Energy, Wisconsin Public Service Corporation, and several equipment installation vendors across the state, were busy winning the battle against wasted energy.
The Packers have completed their South End Zone Renovation of Lambeau Field and are excited about the installation of four new energy efficiency projects. They installed over 500 induction lighting fixtures in the concourse areas; 11 high-efficiency condensing boilers for stadium space heat, heating the field and snow melting; two high-efficiency electric chillers for air-conditioned areas; and ENERGY STAR®-rated kitchen equipment in all the kitchen and food-prep areas. These projects will save the Packers over $100,000 per year in energy costs, saving almost 800,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity and over 65,000 Therms, enough energy to power 147 homes for one year. Focus on Energy was able to provide incentives totaling over $66,000 to assist with the energy-efficient equipment installations.
Focus on Energy is excited to be a part of additional renovation projects at Lambeau Field, as well. The expansion and redesign of the Oneida Nation Gate and the new and expanded player facilities recently was completed and included energy-efficient equipment installations that will qualify for Focus on Energy incentives. Expansion of the Atrium, a two-year project currently underway, will involve advisory from Wisconsin Public Service and Focus on Energy to maximize energy saving opportunities.
Vendors and Focus on Energy Trade Ally partners responsible for the success for the installations were Masters Building Solutions, Heat & Power Products, Tweet Garot Mechanical, VDH Electric and Viking Electric Supply.
