Osprey nest installation latest effort by GM employees to help neighborhood
The site of a large predatory bird, soaring in the air near downtown Flint created a lot of excitement recently for a group walking along Thread Creek near GM’s Flint-North American Tooling Center.
The group – mainly Flint-area media – was hiking to a meadow where Consumers Energy employees were going to install a 45-foot pole and osprey nesting platform that had been fabricated in the nearby GM plant.
New lighting project at the facility saves money and energy usage.
Did you know that LED lights have a lifespan and electric efficiency seven times better than regular incandescent lights, and considerably better than fluorescent lights?
Energy engineers at General Motor’s Saginaw Metal Casting Operations do, and now they’re reaping the benefits in both energy and financial savings. In just the first year of installing LEDs, the facility has saved more than $250,000 and enough energy to power 253 homes for a month.
