PA Manufacturing Plants Recognized By DOE As Leaders In Energy Management

The U.S. Department of Energy recently recognized four Pennsylvania manufacturing plants for their leadership in energy management by earning certification to Superior Energy Performance.

The companies include--

— Curtiss-Wright, Electro-mechanical Division, Cheswick, Allegheny County;

— General Dynamics, Scranton Operations Plant, Scranton, Lackawanna County;

— Land O’ Lakes, Carlisle Dairy Operations, Carlisle, Cumberland County; and

— Mack Trucks, Macungie Cab & Vehicle Assembly Plant, Macungie, Lehigh County.

The SEP program requires organizations to meet the global standard for energy management systems, ISO 50001, and improve energy performance over a sustained period.

DOE highlighted this recognition at the Strategic Energy Management Showcase hosted by Penn State, and also recognized the vision and effort of the Pennsylvania Technical Assistance Program (PennTAP) and DEP in advancing energy savings and security. Through these leaders and accomplishments, Pennsylvania now stands as the state with the most industrial plants in the nation to earn certification to SEP.

“These four plants are leading the way for Pennsylvania industry,” DEP Deputy Policy Director Hayley Book said.  "By conserving energy resources and cutting emissions, they are boosting productivity and competitiveness—creating a healthy, vibrant manufacturing sector that generates good jobs and helps meet state energy and environmental goals. We are excited to be leading the country in SEP certifications and give credit to the leadership and vision of our industrial partners.”
