From replacing inefficient or obsolete point-of-use water boilers to highly-efficient lighting in our warehouse, Phoenix Press understands the need to reduce energy consumption in today's economic climate. Our warehouse thermostats are kept at the bare minimum in winter (55 degrees) to keep our paper crisp and dry, as well as to keep the sprinkler pipes from freezing. Because employees are constantly moving, heating this vast space is not paramount to our operations.
During cool fall and spring days & nights, our manufacturing bay doors are often open, utilizing the very same coastal winds for ventilation that our wind turbine uses to generate electricity. Our employees make use of daylighting where possible, and turn off machines when not in use. We also utilize a propane-powered forklift and several electric hand-trucks, which will be powered by the wind in our press room. Efficiency is our priority, since the more energy we can save, the more energy we can send back to the grid!
