Swiss Cleaners Buttons Up Facility to Save Big With Earthlight

I wanted to get the job done and that’s what Earthlight did, I didn't have to do any of the legwork. The entire project was turnkey, simple and easy to understand. Bruce Kloter  |  Swiss Cleaners & Uniform Services

Powering the Swiss Cleaners & Uniforms Services corporate cleaning facility in Rockville, CT is one of its biggest expenses. Reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs associated with water heating equipment in particular was a big priority for Swiss Cleaners. With the rising cost of energy and equipment maintenance, Swiss Cleaners realized the potential to reduce overhead by combining energy efficiency upgrades and a rooftop solar system.

By installing high-efficiency water heating equipment, LED lighting, and SunPower solar panels, Swiss Cleaners cut energy use by $65,835 annually. The installation of a hot water heat reclaimer, designed to preheat fresh water and reuse waste water, saves $22,830 in fuel costs alone. The solar + LED project is expected to offset Swiss Cleaner’s electricity use by $643,873 over the next 25 years.

An important aspect of this project included finding ways to make its operation more energy efficient which did not involve a significant upfront expenditure.
