Trojan Battery Gets $576,000 For Energy Efficiency Improvements
Trojan Battery, which supplies batteries to the golf-car industry, has received a $576,627 energy rebate check to assist with its efforts to achieve long-term energy savings at its Santa Fe Springs, California manufacturing plant.
To date it is the single largest project completed under SCE’s Technical Assistance and Technology Incentives Program, which provides financial incentives for the installation of technologies that reduce electricity use during high-demand periods. Along with other improvements at the plant, Trojan now can completely automate its demand-response options and shed 3.4 megawatts (MW) of its 4 MW (85 percent) ‘?load’ within minutes with a minimal and manageable short-term impact to production, according to SCE.
