RMI’s Energy Efficiency Program
$Cost Recovery for Maryland Manufacturers
Join Maryland’s leading manufacturers who have participated in a unique manufacturing services program to free up cash from energy inefficiencies. RMI encourages energy efficiency and economic growth for manufacturers being served by Delmarva and PEPCO. The State-funded program provides funding to help manufacturers identify energy efficiency upgrades to reduce their energy expenditures and help them access resources to incentivize their investments.
RMI is pleased to announce that The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) has approved grant funding totaling $302,800 for four RMI Energy Program manufacturing companies, served through PEPCO and Delmarva Power, through the state agency’s Commercial, Industrial and Agriculture Grant Program (CI&A) to support improving energy efficiency and reducing energy costs. RMI helped the grant award recipients, who are all currently participants in RMI’s ongoing Energy Program, submit their winning grant award applications.
How it Works
To qualify for RMI’s Energy Efficiency Program, manufacturers must receive their energy from either Delmarva Power or PEPCO. Priority will be given to those spending a minimum of $80,000 on electricity. The program is well tested and not time-intensive for company personnel. Eligible companies can receive over $20,000 worth top engineering services, at no cost, including an energy assessment of your facility, review of your company’s energy management plan; help with applying for State grants and loans; employee energy culture change training for buy-in and participation in RMI’s manufacturing leadership peer group to share best practices.
RMI has several openings available to join the program. We are Maryland’s major non-profit trade association with a priority goal to help your business grow. Contact us today. You can reach RMI Vice President Peter Gourlay at 443-275-2489 to find out how to benefit or email him at peter.gourlay@rmiofmaryland.
What Manufacturers Say About the Program
John Freeburger, Vice President of Manufacturing, Holmatro USA –
“Within nine months of RMI auditing of our facility, we reduced our energy demands by approximately 1,500 Kwh per working day with an annual savings of approximately $40,000.”
Luke Chow, President, Prime Manufacturing –
“I don’t have the time to focus on energy, but RMI helped me apply for the utility rebates to upgrade my old inefficient lighting to LEDs. Now I’m going to save 50% off my lighting bill.”
Jeff Blankman, Sustainable Manufacturing Manager, McCormick & Company –
“RMI provided thorough air leak detection and combined with other air reduction initiatives of our Packaging facility we identified 1.5 million kWh worth of energy reduction opportunities,” he said.
