Leveraging Grants for Better Ice and Going Green

by Ian Welle & Kashmira Kaushik

“It gives me great peace of mind knowing the foundation and mechanical infrastructure for our new floor is designed to last longer than our last system did at 40 years. The plant is quick to respond, and our ice quality has never been better. We have yet to see the new heat pump in operation, but we look forward to the savings year to year.”
-Ron, JDF Maintenance Supervisor
