GLRPPR Sector Resource: Pearl Pressman Liberty Energy Reduction Case Study at a Commercial Printing Facility

Title:
Pearl Pressman Liberty Energy Reduction Case Study at a Commercial Printing Facility

Abstract:
Pearl Pressman Liberty (PPL), a 29,000-sq.ft. commercial print facility in the historic Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, joined the Green Lights program (stage one of the Energy Star program), and in just one month, has completed energy-efficient lighting upgrades that are now producing savings of over $21,000 a year. Furthermore, the energy reductions from these upgrades are equivalent to removing 28 cars from U.S. highways, or planting 56 acres of trees in U.S. forests. Employees have also benefited: The new energy-efficient lighting provides brighter offices and an increased sense of environmental awareness.
