Results Achieved: Toyota
Toyota’s Huntsville plant makes engines for popular Toyota vehicles like the Tacoma, Tundra, and Highlander. The plant’s air compression system is central to their production process. Like many air compression systems, it was very energy intensive. In fact, operating it accounted for 25% of the plant’s annual energy costs! Toyota contacted Case Controls and IZ Systems in search of a more energy efficient solution.
The two companies partnered to deliver a two-part solution that included local and plantwide controls. The results were incredible: the plant is now saving $68,000 in energy costs. Additionally, workers now have access to real-time trending data they can use to keep the system running smoothly. Read more here.
