Total Ag Receives Rebates For Energy Efficiency

Total Ag recently completed its new facility in Hillsboro, and received $17,791 in rebates using the Bright Energy Solutions programs for new lighting, solar blocking window film, regulated speed air compressor, variable frequency drives, geothermal system, and an Energy Star® washer. Total Ag applied for the rebates through the City of Hillsboro (N.D.) and Missouri River Energy Services (MRES). This project will continue to save Total Ag for years to come with the reduction in peak energy usage. The total estimated savings for this project is 40 kilowatts (kW) of demand monthly and 210,469 kilowatt-hours (kWh) in energy annually over building the facility to code levels. In addition to the energy savings, the facility also has state-of-the-art fixtures, bulbs, and equipment that have a longer life than previous technology; also saving on maintenance costs in the future.
