VOL, CCXXXII1 FINAt. E nl'r~ o,,~ ;w Predictions An Everett business has two big fans of conservation. Huge fans you might say. In fact, these fans would do anything to help the company save energy and money. The fans m quemon are a 150 horsepower one and its 60 horse- power little brother. By slowing their speed down, Woo&ape is helping to bring its electrical bill down, too. Woo&ape produces edge band- ing products made from wood veneers. These ultrathin veneers are used in making furni- ture, trims and other wood products. As the largest Compaa fluorescent light &ribs use 75% less energy producer of than incandescent bulbs, veneer tapes in North America, the company has an 85,000-square-foot plant, I00 employees and, of course, its two fans. "The fans are part of our dust collection system," explains Process Engineer Roger Hunter. "They're in operation all day long. By working with Snohomish PUD and the Just Enough Air project, we were able to reduce their average speed by I5% yet still meet our dust col- lection requirements." just this single step reduced the fans' energy consumption by 38% and will save the company $12,000 this year alone. But the company didn't stop there. And neither did the savings. 10 WAYS TO CONSERVE AT WORK 1. Heat your building or office no higher than 68 degrees during the day and 55 at night. In summer cool your building no lower than 76 degrees. 2. Turn off lights in areas that are not in use, including stets.go roonm, kitchens and conference rooms. Consider using only every other overhead or hall- way light. 3. Turn off computers, printers, copiers, scanners and other office equipment at the end of the day. Turn off one computer and you can save up to $50 a year. Turn off 100 computers and you can save up to $5,000. 4. Turn off perimeter office lighting and use task lamps instead. Better yet, work by daylight where and when pomible. 5. Adjust custodial and maintenance schedules to minimize after-hours light- ing. Have custodial staff turn lights on to begin work and off when finlshsd. 6. Turn off or reduce hours of exterior lighting (except as needed for security purposes). 7. Upgrade lighting systems. Install super-efficient fluorescent lighting, lighting system controls, and sensors to turn off lights when rooms are not occupied. 8. When purchasing new office equip- ment, look for energy-efficient models bearing the Energy Star label. Use all energy-saving features on all office equipment. 9. Make sure that lighting and HVAC systems are performing at optimal levels. Check to be sure that filters and lighting fixture diffusers are clean. 10. Encourage tenants and employees to work together to save energy. Post energy-saving tips through newsletters, " posters and emails. W E AL L HAVE THE P O W E R TO Woo&ape also reduced its ............... lighting load by appropriate use of occupancy sensors in conference rooms, rest rooms and other infre- quently used spaces. The company has disconnected several unneces- sary lights, and has plans to turn off certain lights and "air turnover" units during periods when they're not needed. "The steps we're taking are win-win. We help reduce our opera- tional costs. And we help reduce the area's need for power," says Roger. He calculates that these and other steps will add up to savmgs of close to $20,000 a year. Which ts enough to turn most anyone into a big fan of conservation. Conservation works, at work and at home. So do your part and save energy wherever and whenever you can. For every bit of power you save, that's power you don't have to pay for. To help, we've included a list of 10 ways to help conserve energy. And there are plenty more where these came from. For more infor- mation, call our Energy Hotline at 425-783-1700.
