HAYWARD, WI , June 2, 2014 (Local News) -With the help of Focus on Energy, Wisconsin utilities' statewide program for energy efficiency and renewable energy, and in partnership with Xcel Energy, Flambeau River Papers (FRP) has implemented several energy efficiency projects that will save a total of $383,155 annually.

Working with Focus on Energy, FRP identified a number of high impact energy efficiency projects. The projects had fast economic returns, but the capital required to begin the projects was going to stall their implementation. Focus on Energy was able to structure a loan that provided no out of pocket costs, and allowed FRP to be cash flow positive immediately.

Focus on Energy also helped identify the energy saving opportunities and project requirements, and to calculate energy savings and paybacks. The projects included installation of a steam seal vent condenser on their turbine generator and a boiler deaerator vent condenser; optimized pumping of condensate from a vacuum receiver back to the boiler; reconstruction of two thermocompressors; and installation of a variable frequency drive on a paper machine dry end pulper.
