Controls Upgrade with Energy Retrofit
Headquartered in Hillsboro, Oregon, AGC Electronics America (AGCEA) is a division of AGC Flat Glass North America, Inc., a global glass manufacturing company out of Tokyo, Japan. It is the largest glass company in the world and one of Mitsubishi’s core companies.
This Hillsboro plant manufactures materials for the Semiconductor market, including Silicon Carbide (SiC) materials and CMP Slurry. Armed with prior customer experience from our Advanced Rooftop Control Campaign, our energy team was aware of the potential availability of energy dollars. This would come to fruition if the customer was willing to add to the original scope, and, therefore, receive an incentive lowering the initial costs of the control retrofit as well as continued savings year after year. As the only controls contractor to bring energy savings to the bid, AGC invited us to take a deeper look into their HVAC and existing control system. There were more savings than initially thought – after all calculations and scope were revised, the Energy Trust Incentive came out to 28% of total project costs.
From here, our Controls Team has worked diligently to surpass customer and Energy Trust expectations.
