November 10, 2016

PAEP Pollution Prevention and Energy Efficiency Roundtable (P2E2) Meeting at Lutron World Headquarters, Coopersburg, Lehigh County.

Energy efficiency is an essential element of every home and business. On November 10, 2016, the Pennsylvania Association of Environmental Professionals (PAEP) P2E2 Roundtable held its quarterly meeting at the Lutron World Headquarters Experience Center, Coopersburg, Lehigh County. Lutron has been providing energy-saving light control solutions for more than fifty years and offers solutions to reduce energy costs. The Experience Center allows visitors to see first-hand the demonstrated energy savings inherent with lighting control. Lutron offers dimmers, occupancy/ vacancy sensors, light control systems, and shading solutions to reduce lighting energy use, optimize system performance, and enhance the visual environment. Upper Saucon Township Wastewater Treatment Plant participated in the meeting and were encouraged to become energy ambassadors on their Pretreatment Information Exchange Group (a Lehigh Valley group of wastewater treatment plants that share experiences, successes and failures of pollution prevention initiatives in the industry). The treatment plant readily agreed. A lively discussion followed the tour which included state grant programs such as the High Performance Buildings and the Small Business Advantage Grant. Lutron is already researching the viability of the new DEP/DCED Solar Energy Program (SEP) loan program to install a system at their Coopersburg site. Lutron will join the PAEP and participate in future PAEP Annual Conferences and the P2E2 Roundtable. Lutron offered their site for future meetings of the PAEP P2E2 RT and invited the Roundtable back to tour their manufacturing operations! The next meeting of the PAEP P2E2 RT will be held in February 2017. Additional information on PAEP and the Roundtable can be found at www.paep.org.
