West Haven, CT – In June, representatives from the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Board (EEB) attended a facility tour of Watson, Inc.

Vice President Gavin Watson presented various sustainability efforts and energy efficiency initiatives implemented at the West Haven/Orange facility, which produces ingredient systems and products for the food and supplement industries.

Watson explained that they were able to save about $182,000 in annual energy costs by working with United Illuminating to make energy updates to their facilities, including upgrading compressor systems and lighting.

In addition to some of its other initiatives, the company has started a large shared garden for employees at the Orange facility and purchases 100% of its electrical energy from wind power sources.

EEB tour participants saw the production process of many products and were able to realize firsthand how Watson has taken sustainability beyond the scope of Connecticut’s efficiency programs.
