Local company teams with Eversource

A high-tech manufacturing company in Nashua is saving money and the environment with the help of Eversource.

"Working with Eversource to obtain an incentive for the upgrades at our facility was an important part of the company’s ability to complete this comprehensive project," said Pam Simonds, general manager for Amphenol Printed Circuits.

Recent upgrades to the heating and cooling system at Amphenol were funded in part by a $128,000 incentive paid by the Eversource Energy Rewards Program. Eversource accepts proposals for electrical energy efficiency projects to be implemented at the facilities of commercial and industrial customers. Upgrades may include high-efficiency lighting systems, variable speed drive motors, other measures that reduce annual electrical consumption.

"Major manufacturers in New Hampshire are significantly impacted by the region’s high energy costs," said Tom Belair, manager of energy efficiency for Eversource in New Hampshire.

"One of the best ways these large energy consumers can reduce their costs is by leveraging funds from our energy-efficiency programs to complete upgrades that reduce their energy use."

The upgrades completed at Amphenol are expected to reduce the company’s energy use by more than 650,000 kilowatt hours per year, enough to power 100 New Hampshire homes for a year.

Eversource works with businesses and homeowners to make their buildings and energy use more efficient. For more information about the company’s programs, visit eversource.com.
