OUR VISION IS 20/20

Starting in 2010, we committed to a five-year plan to cut both our energy use and energy costs by 20%. At this moment, we’re at 12% and counting.

ABOVE, BEYOND AND BELOW

OUR BRANCHES LOOK BEYOND THE FLEET TO REDUCE ENERGY IN EVERY CONCEIVABLE WAY.

 

SOUTH TEXAS

Operations

Reduced water usage by 30 percent by adding pressure washers and water reclamation systems.


SEATTLE

Operations

Tracking energy usage data using the Branch Energy Number (BEN) database helped to identify an underground water leak. Once repaired, water usage dropped by more than 80 percent.


OTTAWA

Operations

Partnered with a local company to create Enterprise's first LED internal and external signage to reduce electricity use. The group also reduced natural gas consumption by 19 percent by adding limit switches and constant thermostats to wash bays.


ATLANTA

Operations

Switched the lighting fixtures at all of their branches from the outdated T12 model to an energy-efficient T8 model. The new systems provide more light with fewer fixtures and have reduced energy use enough to pay for the cost of the upgrades in one year.


WISCONSIN

Operations

Executed a complete retrofit to switch all parking lot lighting to LED fixtures. The result is a warmer, more inviting branch environment for customers and a projected energy use reduction of 59 percent.
