Upgrades to reduce annual energy usage by more than 425,000 kWh
November 2, 2017
Concord, NH

Unitil, (www.unitil.com), a provider of natural gas and electricity to New England customers, recently partnered with H.P. Hood LLC (Hood) to conduct a comprehensive energy efficiency project, which will dramatically reduce energy usage.

The changes are expected to help save the Concord plant approximately 425,981 kWh annually, the annual use equivalent of approximately 60 homes.

Central to the project was a major upgrade to Hood’s refrigeration system. The project consisted of replacing its refrigeration chiller, ancillary equipment and controls to support the chilling capabilities. Additionally, by substituting its air compressor, Hood was able to properly support the plan with a variable speed suitable for the facility.

 “We enjoyed collaborating with Unitil on this project,” said Michael Anderson, Hood Plant Manager. “As one of the largest branded dairy operators in the United States, we strive to show other organizations that maximizing efficiency is attainable. The upgrade was well-worth the investment; it will save us money in the long run and will reduce our overall annual energy consumption.”

The refrigeration system has made a substantial impact on the facility by improving the cooling capabilities of the refrigeration plant. 

A lot of folks may not realize it, but the refrigerator is often a top energy user in a home or a business. Making upgrades can potentially have long term benefits, and we encourage businesses and residential customers alike to take strides towards optimizing efficiency where possible.
