How Will YOU Cut Energy Costs in 2013?

There are more than 20 corrugated, paperboard and packaging facilities all over the U.S. that cut their electrical usage by 10 to 20 percent or more in 2012, adding up to millions of dollars in bottom line savings, thanks to a customized solution installed by WPS Global Inc. Let’s take a look at two energy-cutting trends your corrugated/sheet plant should be pursuing in 2013. How Will YOU Cut Energy Costs in 2013? Among Inc. Magazine’s “9 Ways to Cut Energy Costs” is to Take Advantage of Tax Credits. The online publication explains that the federal stimulus package created and extended tax incentives for green initiatives, such as a 30 percent investment tax credit for renewable-energy systems. It suggests you don’t miss out on other reprieves from sources besides the federal government. For a list of state offerings, see the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency,dsireusa.org. The site also features information about rebates for installing renewable-energy and energy-efficient systems. You may recall a recent success story from WPS Global customer Northern Sheets. To help offset the cost of installing the energy reduction system WPS Global had prepared for its facility, Northern Sheets researched the incentives available to it from the State of California. The company learned of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s (SMUD) rebates and incentives to encourage area businesses to invest in energy efficiency. The rebate helped Northern Sheets cover the costs of the installation of a customized energy management solution from WPS Global, which in turn has already cut the facility’s energy costs by 15%.

$$$ SAVINGS GUARANTEED — WHETHER YOUR PLANT OPERATES NEW OR OLD EQUIPMENT

Bill Behrmann says WPS Global can save a corrugated or paperboard plant money, even if it has newer equipment. “You would think with newer machinery you wouldn’t see much of a saving, but it is susceptible to power fluctuations. We can save everybody money.” As energy costs increase, corrugator plants are looking for every opportunity to reduce usage. One solution that several companies have embraced is from WPS Global Inc., an energy management organization. The proprietary technology ensures that the equipment in the corrugator plants is not using more power than it needs. WPS Global’s system conditions the power inside the facility, feeding the equipment the electricity it needs, and not allowing it to draw any more than what it is expected to draw. Behrmann,WPS Global president, explains: “Part of the process is the tracking. If the tracking isn’t correct then you don’t see the full benefit of the system. We’ve never not went in and saved the company money. We’ve learned in the past that if we don’t do our end of it, if tracking isn’t correct we’re not showing the customer exactly what we’re saving them.” There is no maintenance required and the solution does not affect the performance of machines. It enhances them. It protects them from dirty electricity which is not a consistent supply of power. 10% REDUCTION GUARANTEE an insurance policy for saving After WPS Global conducts a comprehensive energy audit, presents a detailed plan and implements your customized supply-side energysaving solution, within weeks you’ll see a reduction in your energy usage and costs. In fact, WPS Global offers a 10 percent reduction guarantee. Combined with its...
