COLUMBUS, OH: American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) received the GreenSpotLight Award from the City of Columbus in recognition of exemplary sustainability practices by a large business. The award follows the completion of several efficiency projects undertaken by AMP throughout 2017, as well as continued sustainability practices throughout the organization.
AMP completed a major facility improvement project in 2017, which included new white-reflective roofing, HVAC unit replacement, and the installation of energy efficient lighting and high-efficient water fixtures, which is expected to save 335,400 kWh annually. AMP continues its ongoing pollution reduction efforts, including recycling an average of 60,000 pounds of various materials every year.
