Custom Coating's EECBG project

Custom Coating in Auburn (all the way up in Dekalb County) had no previous experience with grants, but decided that our Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) would certainly be worth their time. And was it ever! This company had a total project cost of $26,741.16 and received $13,807.58 in EECBG funds for their lighting project.

Four different buildings were retrofitted for more energy efficient lighting. Fifty-three (53) H.I.D. fixtures were retrofitted with forty-five (45) T5 fixtures and eighty-four (84) T12 fixtures were retrofitted with forty-seven (47) T5 fixtures.

The best news is that within months, their eletric consumption was reduced by more than 30,000 kWh, obviously saving the company money as well.
