Eco Engineering Celebrates Energy Efficiency Day 2017

Second annual EE Day urges Americans to “Save Energy. Save Money.”

(October 3, 2017 Cincinnati, OH) – In recognition of the second annual national Energy Efficiency Day (EE Day) on October 5th, Eco Engineering is joining regional and national organizations, businesses, utilities, and individuals working to promote energy efficiency – the cheapest, quickest way to meet our energy needs, cut consumer bills and reduce pollution. Energy efficiency is also an economic engine, supporting 2.2 million jobs nationwide in manufacturing, construction and other fields – most of which can’t be outsourced overseas. This year, EE Day offers a national light bulb challenge to encourage engagement by residents and businesses alike.

According to Tom Kirkpatrick, CEO, “EE Day reinforces everything we’ve been doing at Eco Engineering since the late 1990’s. Helping our clients save money is our business. What they do with the savings is theirs. What it does for the environment is everyone’s.”

Eco Engineering provides customers with a comprehensive engineering grade audit of the lighting environment in any given facility. A full design plan is crafted from audit results, often detailing alternative solutions to maximize energy efficiency, maintenance savings and lighting quality. A complete investment analysis and ROI projections are provided for customer decision support. Eco Engineering then performs the entire upgrade project from implementation to disposal of old technology and assists the customer in applying for any utility rebates and incentives.

Between 1998 and 2016, Eco Engineering has successfully completed more than 2,100 energy efficient lighting programs across 11,000+ facilities involving approximately 216 million square feet of facility upgrades and enhancements. These projects have delivered more than $418 million in cumulative energy savings to customers.

An energy-efficient economy is free to thrive and innovate. Electricity use was 5 percent lower in 2016 than in 2010, while the U.S. economy grew by almost 13 percent over those years, demonstrating that efficiency and economic growth go hand-in-hand. Reducing the energy used by manufacturers, homes and businesses benefits everyone – especially energy bill-payers. Businesses, municipalities, schools, hospitals and industrial facilities can save tens of thousands of dollars per year by switching to energy efficient lighting and advanced lighting controls.
