Celebrating 2015 ENERGY STAR certified plants

70 manufacturing plants have achieved ENERGY STAR certification for their superior energy performance in 2015.

Together, these manufacturing plants saved a record amount of energy, cut their energy bills by $476 million, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than five million metric tons –equal to the average annual energy use of more than 450,500 households.

Since 2006, ENERGY STAR has certified manufacturing plants that have demonstrated that their plants have reached the top 25 percent of energy performance for their industries nationwide each year. 

Nine plants earned certification for the first time:

  • Actavis: Fajardo, Puerto Rico (pharmaceutical manufacturing)
  • Actavis: Manati, Puerto Rico (pharmaceutical manufacturing)
  • Allergan: Cincinnati, Ohio (pharmaceutical manufacturing)
  • Ardagh Group: Bridgeton, N.J. (container glass)

  • ConAgra Foods: Boardman, Ore. (frozen fried potato processing)
  • ConAgra Foods Lamb Weston: Twin Falls, Idaho (frozen fried potato processing).
  • Argos USA: Newberry, Fla. (cement)
  • Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas: Lafayette, Ind. (corn refining)

Throughout 2016, many ENERGY STAR certified plants will be hosting events at their facilities to showcase their energy-saving strategies that are delivering top energy performance. For more information on which plants are hosting events, see www.energystar.gov/industrialshowcase,

Since 2006, ENERGY STAR has certified manufacturing plants that reach the top 25 percent of energy performance for their industries nationwide each year. ENERGY STAR certified plants must have their energy performance independently verified. Plants from the automotive, cement manufacturing, corn refining, food processing, glass manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and petroleum refining industries are among those that qualified in 2015.
