Enbridge provides over $50K for Coco’s energy efficiency projects in Belleville
May 23, 2022 By Anthony Capkun
May 23, 2022 – Through Enbridge Gas Inc.’s Industrial Energy Conservation program, Coco Paving Inc. is receiving $51,348 in support of recent energy efficiency upgrades at its Belleville, Ont., facility.
“Initial investment for energy-efficient equipment is essential to not only provide a safe environment for workers but will provide a return in terms of energy savings in the future,” said Anthony Rossi, director, Coco Group. “With the help of Enbridge Gas’ Energy Efficiency Incentive program, we were able to install energy-efficient equipment to help protect the environment and our employees; these incentives help to make the right decision.”
This investment not only helps the company reduce costs, lower emissions and improve competitiveness, says Enbridge, but contributes to the province’s goal of reducing GHG emissions.
The construction company received incentives for three projects completed at its Belleville site in 2021, which equate to an estimated natural gas savings of 169,559 m3 annually. Additionally, the company will save about $33,911 in natural gas costs. These cost savings have been redirected into enhancing Coco Paving’s operations, Enbridge says, including investing in cleaner equipment and technologies.
The projects included two separate feasibility studies that looked at introducing alternative materials into the company’s operations to help enhance energy efficiency, and a project aimed at finding a solution for developing a more durable asphalt mix for cold-climate roads.
The Enbridge Gas Industrial Energy Conservation program is designed to help end-use customers improve energy efficiency and environmental performance in new construction or on major renovation projects.
“The success of Enbridge’s Energy Efficiency programs is completely dependent on working with our customers and understanding all of their energy solution needs,” said Jean-Benoit Trahan, director, Eastern Region Operations & Gazifère, Enbridge Gas. “While natural gas continues to be one of the most economical fuels, we also want to ensure that our customers are being as efficient as possible with their usage.”
