Join representatives from CNGC on Tuesday, September 11 at 11:00am at the Riverside Industrial Park 501-C Keys Road as CNGC presents a check to Megalodon Property Management for their energy-efficient projects.
While there’s nothing comfortable about slamming and crashing into the walls of a roller derby track, the athletes on the Wine Country Crushers Roller Derby Team and several other tenants, are now more comfortable than ever thanks to energy efficiency upgrades. Megalodon Property Management acted immediately when they noticed their many warehouses in Yakima, Wash., were too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer for their wide variety of tenants including fruit-processor Tree Top, tortilla maker Mission Foods and the aforementioned roller derby team.
Upon upgrading to five energy-efficient unit heaters and new wall, attic and roof insulation, the facility managers enjoyed reduced energy costs while tenants experienced an immediate improvement to their indoor comfort. “The upgrade has drastically improved the temperature and comfort in our facility,” said Wine Country Crushers Roller Derby Team facility manager Jeremy Sandino. “Our athletes have all commented on how much quieter and cool the building is during practices.”
In addition to saving the warehouse complex 51,189 therms of gas every year, the new equipment came with a $222,792 cash incentive from Cascade Natural Gas. Along with gas savings, the warehouse upgraded interior and exterior lighting and received incentives from their local electric utility, Pacific Power. “The rebates are really helpful, and the improvements have increased our desirability dramatically,” said Megalodon’s owner, Larry Hull. “I see a real long-term benefit.”
Cascade’s C&I Conservation Incentive Program offers rebates for measures to reduce the consumption of natural gas on both existing buildings and new construction. For additional information about incentives please contact Bradey Day at 503-360-7337 or visit www.cngc.com/conservation.
