Wind is free, and by capturing it efficiently using advanced technologies, it can produce energy that does not create green house gases or other types of pollutants. Examples of man harnessing the energy of the wind to create wind power dates back to almost 7,000 years ago. New technologies look to increase efficiency levels even more at affordable price points.

Thank you for continuing to read my four week blog series that uncovers the four, primary culprits of wasted energy in a typical manufacturing setting.  In my previous three blogs, I’ve dissected and offered tips to mitigate the inefficient operation of three of the four energy hogs in a typical manufacturing setting – compressed air, HVAC, and the equipment/machinery. Today, I will investigate the final element that is often overlooked because of its rather basic function – lighting.

I plan on devoting my next few blogs analyzing the four primary energy consumers in a typical manufacturing environment. Obviously, every facility relies on different utilities to run their operation depending on processing needs, but the majority would see compressed air, HVAC, production machinery/equipment, and lighting as the big four energy users.
