Chrysler Plant Efficiencies to Save $1.25M per Year
Chrysler spent three years trying to get LEED Gold certification for its Trenton South engine plant, which makes the Pentastar engine.
The building has a reflective white membrane on the roof, as well as an extensive recycling program.
The building was constructed of recycled steel. The concrete floor was made of recycled content.
In all, the building was made of 47 percent recycled materials.
The building uses direct-fire commercial boilers, which Chrysler said is more efficient than other options.
The building claims a 39 percent energy savings over similar structures, which translates to $1.25 million a year.
