WETSUIT WEARHOUSE TO RECEIVE AN ENERGY MAKEOVER!
Specialty shop will upgrade its lighting with an energy grant funded by the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA).
Williamsport, Md. (July 7, 2014) – Wetsuit Wearhouse Inc., based in Williamsport, Md., is pleased to announce that it is one of twenty-three recipients to receive an energy efficiency grant through the EmPOWER Maryland Commercial & Industrial Grant Program.
“I was surprised and honored to have been selected,” said Chris Moleskie, President and CEO of Wetsuit Wearhouse, Inc. “Due to our facility residing in the Town of Williamsport, we were not otherwise eligible for any energy efficiency rebates/incentives. Without the Governor’s grant through the Maryland Energy Administration, we would not have been able to afford the upgrades.”
As the only grant recipient in Washington County, Wetsuit Wearhouse plans to start upgrading to energy efficient fixtures and bulbs this summer, and have it completed shortly after. This will ultimately allow the business to save around $2,000 in energy expenses per year and about 20,000 kWh of electricity.
This grant provides updated lighting throughout the building and assists the business with its current and future environmentally-friendly efforts. “We’ve already cut our consumption dramatically through insulating our building and replacing our old boiler heater with two energy saving heat pumps,” said Moleskie. “Once our energy usage is dialed in, we’ll be ready to proceed with our planned 19.8 kW rooftop solar array. With the addition of the efficient lights, we should be able to produce 100% of our energy needs.”
The MEA energy efficiency grant will cover 40% of the lighting upgrade expenses for Wetsuit Wearhouse.
