Lowe-Martin Celebrates Energy Program
The Lowe-Martin Group continues to develop its environmental strategy, after recently receiving a $25,000 rebate cheque from Hydro Ottawa for its participation in the Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program.
The cheque presentation by The Honourable Brad Duguid, Ontario’s Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, and Rosemarie Leclair, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa, was made on June 10 at Lowe-Martin's Ottawa printing facility.
“At The Lowe-Martin Group we believe in reducing the impact we have on the environment and our success at reducing our energy consumption has contributed significantly to achieving that goal,” stated Ward Griffin, President and CEO of Lowe-Martin.
The Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program (ERIP), headed by Hydro Ottawa in cooperation with the Ontario Power Authority, is a provincial rebate program that provides financial incentives to influence its customers to undertake projects to improve both the energy efficiency of their facilities and their bottom line.
Among several energy-use programs instituted at Lowe-Martin, the company highlights its T5 lighting retrofit, which has a 66 percent longer lamp life than the previously installed system, as a significant step forward in energy conservation. According to the company, its T5 retrofit provides energy savings of over 370,000 kilo-watt hours per year.
In January 2009, Lowe Martin also received the Hydro Ottawa Companies for Conservation Award. The company has also received an award for Most Environmentally Progressive Printer in Canada for the past four years in PrintAction's Environmental Printing Awards program.
