Hernandez Companies is taking positive steps to minimize our impact on the environment by implementing many of the same improvements that we recommend to our clients, from light fixture upgrades to modernizing the vehicles we utilize in our service fleet.
In 2010 we upgraded all of our office and shop fixtures to high-efficiency fluorescent systems and installed motion sensors in rooms that are not 100 percent occupied. These upgrades alone save over 32,000 kWh/year. We also installed 20w LED upgrades to our exterior lighting saving more that 1300 kWh/year.
We recently upgraded 10 percent of our fleet with alternative-fuel vehicles. Additionally we replaced two of our Mobile Service Units with high-efficiency vehicles, a measure that reduced fuel consumption in these units by half.
We reduced the annual energy demand of our main office and warehouse by 65 percent through the installation of a Grid Tie Solar Array consisting of 126 panels.
For 35 years Hernandez companies has been making buildings better, from plumbing to electrical and everything in between. For more information on how Hernandez Companies can assist your business to save with Earth Wise Measures, please give us a call or drop us a line.
