The Colton Plant Kiln line has a waste heat Cogen plant, producing up to 5MW of power. The Colton plant was awarded the ENERGY STAR label for 2006 and 2007
In 2003, CalPortland Company worked with ENERGY STAR to create an energy management program based on their Guidelines for Energy Mangagement. Since that time, the Colton Plant has made energy management a core part of the business. The Colton plant has performed many plant efficiency assesments to identify potential energy savings projects and, with the assistance of Southern California Edison, applied for and received rebates for installing these energy efficiency projects. These projects include plant compressed air modifications, high efficiency process equipment installations, lighting retrofits, automated controls projects, process optimization upgrades, and many more. Plant awareness and training have been key elements in changing ways that employees use energy. Since 2006 when the Colton plant first received the ENERGY STAR label, the Colton plant has a combined savings of 143,855,551 kBtu.
