NORDAM Lauded By AEP/PSO for Best Lighting Energy Efficiency Project of 2014

TULSA, Okla. (April 28, 2015) – NORDAM received the American Electric Power / Public Service Company of Oklahoma (AEP/PSO) award for “Best Lighting Energy Efficiency Project of 2014” during the utility’s Spring Commercial & Industrial Workshop at Southern Hills Marriott, 1902 E. 71st Street.

The honor comes as a result of replacing 650 thousand-watt, metal-halide lighting fixtures with energy-saving LEDs at NORDAM’s Repair Division, Pine & 169 – a move that cut the facility’s wattage use in half.

Vice President of Global Marketing Bailey J. Siegfried, who is responsible for NORDAM’s Office of Corporate Responsibility, accepted the award on behalf of the aerospace company. “Pursuing energy-efficient solutions to reduce environmental impact is important to NORDAM,” he said. “This project alone prevents more than 2,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide from being created per year and saves enough electricity to power nearly 300 homes.”

“NORDAM’s project will result in significant energy savings for the company on an ongoing basis.  For investing in highly efficient LED technology, it also received a rebate from PSO to help offset the cost of that investment. PSO is pleased to have partnered with NORDAM on its energy-efficiency improvement project,” Kerry Rowland, PSO Energy Efficiency & Consumer Programs coordinator said.

NORDAM also won top lighting project in 2013 for a similar replacement of LEDs at its Interiors & Structures and Nacelles & Thrust Reverser Systems divisions, both in Cherokee Industrial Park.
