To-Jo makes commitment to reduce electricity usage

by | January 06, 2009
To-Jo Mushrooms, based in Avondale, PA, has partnered with EnerNOC Inc. for Demand Response, an energy-conservation program that reduces stress on the electric power grid during periods of high demand.

Anthony D'Amico, executive vice president of To-Jo, cited environmental stewardship as a company priority and a driving force behind the decision to implement the program that conserves energy and makes a positive impact with community neighbors.

"The combination of To-Jo's desire to conserve energy and EnerNOC's monitoring and technical capabilities make for a strong partnership that should allow us to reduce electricity consumption when our community neighbors need it the most," Mr. D'Amico said in a press release.

"Better energy management is a good decision for business, the community and the environment," Tim Healy, chairman and chief executive officer of EnerNOC, added in the press release. "We look forward to working with To-Jo on a wide range of energy initiatives that will provide more insight into their energy usage, drive bottom-line savings and help ensure that electricity resources throughout Avondale remain stable and cost-effective."
