"I just wanted to let you know that we installed 29 variable frequency drives on our Paint Line System and took advantage of the DP&L rebate program. The pay back is 7 months. If you remember, we had most valves throttled back on all of our 29 pumps. The valves were closed in most cases on average 70 percent. With recent installation we now have all the valves open and are operating the pump motors from 32 hertz to 45 hertz. Before the VFDs, all motors were running at 60 hertz. Your students were a great help to get us to this point. The original concept was to install a light curtain to shut the pumps on or off if there was no product running thru the system. If you are still in contact with them please share this information with them. I am happy to say that we have implemented just about every improvement idea that came from the assessment."
"I felt the word "student" was a misnomer for your team. I have a bachelor's and master's degree with lots of experience, but found I was student many times asking them to explain to me. These younger folks may be students in terms of we are all students, always learning, but these folks are TRUE SKILLED PROFESSIONALS. We were lucky to have this week and wherever they land will be lucky to have them as well."
"I would like to thank you and your staff for visiting our facility. Both Terry and I enjoyed the opportunity to work with you in finding energy saving ideas for our facility. We were very impressed with the knowledge and level of details that everyone provided."
"I want to thank you again for the day we spent together. I believe your visit will result in additional energy improvements to our plant. I greatly enjoyed the conversations. I was very impressed with the "down-to-earth" approach your group employed in our assessment. We are already starting to investigate some of your proposals."
"Firstly, congratulations in an excellent report. Good summaries and all recommendations appear realistic and not some theoretical impractical ideas!"
""Thank you for your time, and I look forward to reading and hopefully implementing all of your recommendations.""
