Con-Cast Pipe Inc.

Oakville Plant successfully implements power Optimizing devices and saves 10% on their monthly electric bill

Con-Cast Pipe Inc. announced today its ‘Zero Net Cost’ energy efficiency project conducted with NUS Consulting Group, and Wheelworks Energy Inc. at its Oakville plant, delivers sustained electricity savings.

The project was anchored on leading energy efficiency technologies marketed by the Effect Operational Sales Group (Effect OSG), namely the KVAR Energy Controllers (KVAR ECs™) which optimizes power factor and Somar™ Integra for voltage optimization of motors. These technologies work by automatically optimizing the efficiency of the electric system, thereby reducing energy consumption for electric utility customers, demand on the electric grid, line losses and carbon footprint.

Randy Buck, CEO of Wheelworks stated “Con-Cast was intent on improving the efficiency of their plant so they could better serve their clients. We surveyed their facilities and suggested leading power factor and voltage optimization products that could really deliver savings.” Mark Wetselaar, Con-Cast CFO, added “They clearly delivered on savings at our Oakville plant. In fact, we fully subscribe to this formula where the project is paid through verified monthly savings rather than through capital funds. Thus far, we’ve seen an average 10% savings per month on our electric bill so we look forward to implementing these energy efficiency technologies at our Guelph facility in the future.”
