East Metro Clean ‘n’ Press (West Saint Paul) - Energy efficiency improvements

A large dry cleaner and shirt laundry, East Metro made use of heat exchangers to increase energy efficiency and offer excess heat to a neighboring business in the winter. They cut energy use by replacing boilers with higher efficiency boilers and replacing all lights with energy-efficient bulbs. Customers also returned 126,000 hangers for reuse. These changes yield annual savings of $15,000.
