LaSalle Steel Corp.

By installing a new, more efficient lighting system at Niagara LaSalle SteelCorp. in Hammond, IN., the company saves $246,000 on their electricity bill annually! With an Illinois utility incentive check of $170,000, the return on investment for the project was 5 months. Over 2,560,000 pounds of carbon dioxide is kept out of the air each year from the completion of this project – the equivalent of Niagara taking 242 cars off the road or eliminating 1,712 homes from the grid each year! The project was so successful that Niagara LaSalle Steel Corp. hired Verde Solutions for another project at its South Holland, IL facility!
