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.
Every child knows that bees pollinate flowers to produce honey, but most people would be surprised at how many other foods come from pollinators. One out of every three bites of food humans eat comes from a pollinator. The cup of coffee you drink in the morning, your favorite box of chocolates, the chestnuts roasting on an open fire – you can thank pollinators for all those things.
