For manufacturers, energy is a key input, playing a central role in harnessing machines, materials and people. Energy Trust can help your industrial facility get more from your energy.

Upgrade your equipment

If you’re adding or replacing equipment or upgrading your lighting system, Energy Trust can help you find a qualified and knowledgeable vendor or contractor.

Lighting, heating, refrigeration, pumps, air compressors and more — together, they make up a large part of your energy costs. Energy Trust offers a streamlined path to receive rebates when you purchase energy-efficient industrial equipment directly from vendors.

Upgrade lighting & lighting controls

Lighting is often one of the first energy-efficiency upgrades at a manufacturing plant and it does a lot more than save money on energy costs. Having the right lighting system can also improve safety and productivity, and result in better product quality. Energy Trust offers technical assistance and cash incentives for qualified lighting projects. We can also help you find a qualified lighting contractor.
