 Electrical: Energy Efficiency - Weyerhaeuser Energy Policy Yields Rapid Payback
Weyerhaeuser's Longview Complex, in Longview, Washington, is one of 280 company facilities that now save money with high-efficiency motors and transformers, thanks to a company-wide energy policy.
Besides using their forests wisely, Weyerhaeuser made a corporate policy decision to pursue "green" policies like utilizing more than 98% of its raw materials and by burning its organic residues in waste-heat-recovery boilers, which generate enough electricity for two-thirds of its energy needs.
Weyerhaeuser therefore concluded that all non-IEEE 841 motors should be evaluated and, as a practical matter, that any motors projecting a payback period less than 3.5 years should be replaced.
