Indiana Michigan Power Presents Kay Manufacturing with Energy Efficiency Program Incentive Check

St. Joseph, MI – Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) presented Kay Manufacturing with a check for $50,000 on Friday for its efforts to reduce its future energy usage at its facility by participating in an I&M energy efficiency program.

Kay Manufacturing Company, which produces parts for automobile transmissions, will save more than 631,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a year – enough to power 80 homes in Michigan for one year.

“This project exemplifies the goals of I&M’s energy efficiency programs,” said Jason Whitman, I&M Energy Efficiency and Consumer Program Coordinator. “By replacing outdated lighting technology, such as fluorescent lighting to modern LED fixtures, Kay Manufacturing Company is doing its part to save energy and become more efficient in the way it conducts business.”

Kay Manufacturing Company performed upgrades in its facility, including upgrading old lighting with new LED fixtures and installing occupancy sensors designed to reduce energy waste while a room is empty. The project qualified for the Michigan-Custom Incentive Program, one of I&M’s energy efficiency programs.

“The company wants to thank Indiana Michigan Power for supporting our commitment to growth.” said Brian Pelke, Kay Manufacturing President. “At Kay Manufacturing, we are always striving to find the best way to integrate new measures that accelerate our business. By taking advantage of the I&M program, the company will deliver on being cost-effective and energy efficient for both our customers and our workforce.”

Incentives for I&M’s business customers in both Michigan and Indiana are available for qualifying energy efficiency upgrades. During the program, customers work with approved service providers to help identify system improvements and efficiency measures. Energy saving incentives are available to help offset the cost of implementing the new efficiency measures. A few of the benefits of the program include – reduced energy consumption, enhanced building performance and extended life expectancy of equipment.
