Chrysler Plant Wins Award
Brampton Assembly Plant Awarded for Energy EfficiencyChrysler Group’s manufacturing and assembly facilities continue to be recognized for their efficiency and achievements.
On May 14, the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC) presented Chrysler Group’s Brampton Assembly Plant (BAP) with a Leadership Award for its significant and innovative contributions to energy efficiency. BAP was recognized for having installed a number of technologies that would save the plant money while also protecting the environment from wasteful energy use.
Autonomous lighting control in the plant automatically shuts down lights in unoccupied areas, saving the plant over $100,000 per year in energy costs. Automated heating and ventilation, set to run on a schedule, is estimated to save the plant over $2 million a year in electricity and natural gas costs, and will reduce the plant’s exhaust by 1.2 million cubic feet per minute. These technologies allowed BAP to become the first automotive assembly plant in Canada to achieve ISO 500001 certification for energy efficiency, which is how the plant earned CIPEC’s recognition.
