Michigan Air Wins Two Compressed Air Awards from Consumers Energy

We’re pleased to announce that Michigan Air Solutions has received the 2017 Compressed Air Top Savings award and the Compressed Air Most Applications award from Consumers Energy Business Efficiency Program.

The compressed air program is designed to provide special incentives to industrial customers with compressed air systems installed in their facilities. The program gives customers the opportunity to examine their system efficiency through Compressed Air Energy Audits, as well as provide incentives to businesses for energy efficient compressed air systems.

Michigan Air Solutions performs compressed air energy audits by looking at the areas compressed air is used; whether on the assembly line, the shop floor, in air tools, pneumatic post systems, in older HVAC systems or for energy storage. By completing this audit, they could identify savings opportunities.

Liz Hamersma, Director of Marketing at Michigan Air Solutions says: “Helping Michigan businesses save energy is a top priority for us, and to be recognized for these two awards is outstanding. Working with compressed air uses a lot of energy, and with extra effort examining our systems, developing products that help promote environmental conservation, and improve energy efficiency is what we strive for.”

Energy efficiency is a growing area of concern for manufacturers and consumers alike. Engineers are looking to improve machines’ ability to use energy and those who are seeking to purchase equipment look to save money for their organizations through reduced energy bills.

Since 2012, Michigan Air has helped companies receive over $1 million in incentives while saving over 16 million kilowatts per hour (KWH) in power usage. In addition, Michigan Air’s participation in this program has resulted in over 280,000 trees planted and over 12 thousand tons of carbon emissions avoided.
