Kentucky Energy Alliance meets at USPC in Erlanger
Industries gather for Roundtable and Facility Tour.
The third KEA meeting was held at The United States Playing Card Company's facility in Erlanger, KY.
Industry and state government representatives joined KPPC August 3, 2011, for the third meeting of the Kentucky Energy Alliance (KEA). Fifty-seven attendees gathered at The United States Playing Card Company facility in Erlanger, KY. For over 100 years, USPC has been the leader in production and distribution of premier playing cards and a creator of innovative games.
KEA meetings are presented as part of KPPC's environmental sustainability training series and provide a forum for attendees to learn from one another, discussing their concerns and experiences in trying to improve energy efficiency at their facilities. The August 3 meeting featured presentations from member industries and a discussion of utility opportunities, as well as the USPC case study and facility tour. One resource mentioned at the meeting was the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) website, which is a central reference source for government tax credit and utility rebate program information.
"USPC hosted the Kentucky Energy Alliance meeting to showcase our accomplishments in the energy arena and to thank KPPC for helping us set up a great energy program to reduce energy usage. We have toured and attended meetings at other sites and wanted to give others the opportunity to tour our facility. The networking that takes place at these events is priceless, allowing industries to learn from each other and discuss their experiences and share resources."
-Rick Montgomery, Facility and Security Manager, The United States Playing Card Company
