Colson Caster, a provider of caster and wheel products in Monette, Ark., has received a $28,021 incentive check from the Entergy Arkansas Inc. Commercial and Industrial Custom Program for installing insulating blankets on its injection molding machines.
"In addition to the energy savings, the installation of the insulating blankets helped to create a safer work environment for our employees by reducing the surface temperature from 450 degrees to 110 degrees," said Plant Engineer Jack Birdno.
The program helps businesses save energy and money by providing no-cost facility improvement recommendations and financial incentives based on the total amount of energy the improvements will save. The insulating blankets will save more than 1,080,000 kWh of electricity per year.
