Nissan's manufacturing facilities in North America are making major changes to reduce the amount of energy they use. They have committed to reduce their overall energy consumption by 25 percent in ten years. It is a move meant to help the environment.
"In fact, it is one of our most costly utilities. We have nine large compressors that supply us with compressed air here at our plant in Smyrna," said Jason Watkins, Nissan safety coordinator.
"When this tool is used effectively it could help us achieve that 25 percent reduction within 10 years," said Watkins. "Now we are looking at communicating with our truck system and getting it used there as well."
