Cargill Albert-lea plant invests in energy-efficient lighting
Cargill has invested some $300,000 to install energy-efficient lighting throughout its Albert Lea plant, with the goal of improving workplace safety and lighting system reliability, and reducing maintenance. In addition, more than 765,000 kilowatts of electric energy is being saved annually – enough power to supply the needs of 67 average American homes for a year, the company said in a release.
Since acquiring the Albert Lea facility in 2008, Cargill has invested nearly $15 million in the plant, including food safety technology, ovens, freezers and other capital improvements. The plant has reduced energy use by 11 percent during that period, as well as reduced landfill waste by initiating a cardboard and paper recycling program.
