Newport, Orleans County - 

When high-end furniture manufacturer Built by Newport needed to upgrade its vacuum pumps, the co-owner contacted Efficiency Vermont.

Efficiency Vermont was able to help the company optimize and consolidate its vacuum pumps into a new system that used half the horsepower, and helped secure funding for the work. The project was financed using a Business Energy Loan, and it had an ROI of two years and positive cash flow from Day One.

Thanks to financing and technical expertise that allowed Built by Newport to address equipment concerns in a timely way, the company was able to build capacity and ramp up production.
