Vitro Architectural Glass in Salem, Oregon is a participant of Energy Trust of Oregon’s Strategic Energy Management (SEM) offering and they recently celebrated a successful year of energy savings.

SEM helps organizations identify significant cost-saving opportunities and capture energy savings with continued learning and support opportunities. Along with being an SEM participant, the glass manufacturer has completed many other energy-efficient projects including installing vacancy and exterior occupancy sensors, upgrading to LED lighting with fixture mounted occupancy sensors, and more.

To show employees just how much energy they are saving, a poster was created displaying kilowatt-hour/year and tacos. Over one year, the company saved 994,977 kWh which is the energy equivalent in calories of about 10,871,238 tacos. The plant is also seeing an estimated $62,000 in annual energy cost savings.
