  • Continue improvements in energy performance through corporate efficiency and sustainability plans;
  • Demonstrate leadership to advance energy efficiency within industry, the community, and with policy makers; and
  • Collaborate with ratepayer-funded and state energy efficiency programs.

In the past 15 years alone, Monadnock has initiated 22 energy efficiency projects, including installation of more efficient motors, LED lighting through the plant, HVAC upgrades, production line equipment improvements, and compressed air system improvements.

“NEEP is proud to recognize Monadnock for its success and commitment to energy efficiency,” said Sue Coakley, Executive Director of NEEP. “Monadnock provides an excellent example of how energy efficient measures can improve a company’s bottom line, contribute to economic growth and reduce environmental impact.”
