If you’ve ever passed by TowerJazz’s Newport Beach foundry facility, it’s clear that this is one big operation that could – potentially, at least – eat up a whole lot of energy. But it doesn’t. In fact, since January of last year, the company has reduced its annual consumption by 9 million kilowatt hours. That’s the carbon-reduction equivalent of 12,982 barrels of oil or 1,071 cars. And last year, TowerJazz joined the Cool Planet Project, an energy-efficiency and climate-change mitigation program administered by The Climate Registry and Southern California Edison, which – by the way – seems to have become quite smitten with the organization. The company has garnered an Outstanding Achievement in Energy Efficiency Award and a Flex Your Power award from the utility company. Now that’s something to get jazzed about.
