National Grid has been working hand-in-hand with Toray Plastics over the past two years to provide customized energy solutions that help support the company’s energy efficiency goals.

Highlights include:

  • 22.5 million combined heat and power project (Co-gen)
  • The project will reduce electricity consumption energy by 12 MW
  • Co-gen will use 6.35 million therms per year
  • Project was fully up and running as of Sept. 30
