Operating your company as efficiently as possible is always a priority, but there are wastes all around you that you may not even see. New England Lean Consulting has partnerships under Eversource and United Illuminating programs to provide energy audits to qualified businesses. These audits are comprehensive reviews of all energy use within an operation; it’s not just a glorified light bulb replacement program. Assessors identify all non-value-added energy uses within your operation, and quantify those wastes so you can see their impact to your bottom line. Some typical production areas that offer opportunities to save include:
- Compressed air (leaks/usage)
- Lighting (LED options)
- HVAC systems (including potential heat recovery opportunities)
- Manufacturing machine energy consumption
New England Lean Consulting is an approved vendor for The PRIME Program (Process Reengineering for Increased Manufacturing Efficiency Program). This program is an Industrial Solution available to Connecticut Manufacturers through funding from Energize CT. The purpose of the program is to eliminate wasteful practices and provide LEAN training to improve efficiency and profitability.
