“I couldn’t be happier to assist Arkansas businesses reduce their power consumption by energy efficient measures. Every project that CLEAResult assists a customer with is a positive step in their energy reduction,” says Taylor Dumas, West Regional Account Manager at Entergy Arkansas Energy Solutions Program. “The Taber Extrusions project is one that greatly reduced power consumption, increases machine efficiency, and makes Taber Extrusions a ‘greener’ business by completing this project.”

CLEAResult is consulting company for Entergy Arkansas that implements the Energy Solutions Program for Entergy Arkansas which is their energy efficiency program.  Mr. Dumas met with Taber and conducted an energy study which revealed opportunities for Taber to improve their compressed air system. Energy efficiency measures took place with products coming from James Reid at Arkansas Industrial Machinery, INC, or AIM for short. The project consisted of two (2) new compressors and one (1) new refrigeration cycling dryer. CLEAResult completed the energy efficiency process by comparing the baseline power usage to post install power usage, and this delta in baseline to post install power usage resulted in significant kWh and kW savings.

Dumas adds, “The honor is something that Entergy Arkansas enjoys doing for their customers who actively participate in their Energy Solutions Program to say ‘thank you’ for energy reduction, positive thinking, and effort on how they use their power.”

They have programs designed for each type of business and ways to implement cost reduction by multiple methods of energy reduction. The Energy Solutions Program is available to all Entergy Arkansas customers, and Arkansas businesses can benefit like Taber Extrusions by creating a plan to reduce power consumption by energy efficient measures.
