Daniel Penn Associates has been awarded a contract by the Connecticut Light & Power Company (CL&P), an electric operating subsidiary of Northeast Utilities (NU) and The United Illuminating Company (UI) to support the execution of the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund’s PRIME Program. Administered by CL&P and UI, the PRIME program helps manufacturers reduce their energy consumption through the use of LEAN Manufacturing principles. PRIME teaches manufacturers how to implement Lean Manufacturing techniques by setting up and participating in Lean events conducted at their business. Results of these events include streamlined product flows, elimination or reductions in waste, improved production efficiency and minimized environmental impact. Participating businesses will become more efficient and reduce electricity consumption per unit produced.

The program offers two free Lean Kaizen events funded at 100 percent and an optional follow-on two Lean Kaizen events funded at 50 percent. All industrial customers of UI or CL&P are eligible to apply. Customers with an annual consumption greater than 500,000 kWh are preferred.. Interested companies may schedule a no-cost survey/tour with Daniel Penn Associates. We will review your organization’s manufacturing processes and determine if there are opportunities to save energy and optimize your processes. If the survey reveals opportunities that will lead to verifiable energy-use reductions, your company will be eligible for funding through the PRIME program.
