Manufacturing

Industrial facilities use more than 30% of all of the energy consumed in the United States. Energy used in industrial buildings and manufacturing processes is a large percentage of the overall operating costs. Increased energy efficiency in industrial facilities can produce significant savings that go to the bottom line.
