The Powers Green Commitment
In 2009, Powers Distributing became the first beverage wholesaler in the country to convert 50% of its Delivery Fleet to a more fuel efficient hybrid route tractor. Currently we have 20 hybrid tractors on the road which is more than any other beer distributor in the country. When weather permits, all of our vehicles are fueled by B20 biodiesel. Our On-Premise trailers are refrigerated to maintain the highest quality of draft beer.
The recycling operations include glass bottles, aluminum cans, cardboard, plastic bottles, and used stretch film. We also recycle office paper, shop metal, and wooden pallets.
Projects to upgrade energy efficient lighting are well under way. Recently, we have started to replace our high bay, high intensity discharge (HID) fixtures with T5 fluorescent fixtures, and T8 lamps with electronic ballasts are replacing all of our office-area old style T12 fluorescent lights. The warehouse and office area also includes automatic shut-off lighting.
