Home organization company receives $20,000 energy rebate–plus $27,000 in annual savings
Air Technologies® helped The Stow Company, a custom home organization system company, save over $27,000 in annual energy savings and win a $20,000 energy rebate.
Based in Holland, Mich., The Stow Company manufactures and sells custom closet organizers and home organization systems. Its facility was operating with aged equipment and lacked a full back-up system. Its air compressors were modulation controlled and were not operating efficiently. The company reached out to Air Technologies® to improve its energy efficiency.
Air Technologies® experts conducted a compressed air system audit. They determined that two Atlas Copco GA 45 load/unload air compressors and a GA 45 variable speed drive (VSD) compressor would run the company’s facility at minimal costs. The Atlas Copco GA VSD technology reduces energy costs on average by 35% by automatically adjusting the air supply to meet the customers’ air demand. Using this technology can cut the lifecycle cost of a compressor by an average of 22%. Air Technologies® also recommended the manufacturer use ManagAIR®, a centralized compressed air control system that efficiently monitors, operates and controls compressed air systems from a LAN-connected PC.
After installation of the air compressors and ManagAIR®, The Stow Company saw a savings of over $27,000 in annual energy costs. It also found that ManagAIR® helped free maintenance personnel’s valuable time by providing automatic data logging of all operating conditions of the connected equipment. In addition to annual energy savings, the company was granted a $20,000 energy rebate—the highest possible rebate for its category.
