On December 8, 2011, Mount Joy Wire Corporation officially commissioned the new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) System with a special ribbon cutting ceremony and plant tour attended by a variety of business leaders and state and local dignitaries.
The CHP is a natural gas fueled generator that will ultimately produce as much as half the electricity needed to power the specialty wire manufacturing facility while using residual heat to help supply the facility’s steam and hot water needs. $1.3 million of the system’s $1.7 million cost was paid for by a Green Energy Works grant, through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the PA DEP.
“The event was a great success, and we are excited to have the CHP up and running to help us meet increased demand for Mount Joy Wire products,” states Tom Duff, President and CEO. “We want to extend a special thank you to the people who made all of this possible, especially A1 Energy, Borton Lawson Engineering, and Northeast Energy Systems.”
