On March 15, the Energy Trust of Oregon (Energy Trust) presented the Portland Water Bureau with a check for nearly half a million dollars in front of City Council – an incentive that will benefit Portland Water Bureau customers.
This incentive was awarded to the Water Bureau’s new energy-efficient Hannah Mason Pump Station, which replaced the old 1912 Fulton Pump Station in Southwest Portland.
The energy-efficient design of this new pump station will cut annual energy costs by nearly $163,000. Plus, Energy Trust enabled the Water Bureau to identify an estimated annual savings of 2.37 million kilowatt hours. The carbon equivalent for these savings is 610 metric tons, or approximately 1.345 million pounds, of CO2 reduction.
