The "Net-Zero Energy" Project: Design a 100% on-site green energy system to manufacture our green bedding.
Since we manufacture green bedding using renewable and sustainable materials, it made good sense for us to come full-circle and install our own renewable energy system. Our goal was to design and install a 100% on-site renewable energy system, and CozyPure is proud to say “mission accomplished.”
CozyPure is now what’s called a "Net Zero Energy Building", and there aren't too many commercial buildings that can make that claim. In fact, we're one of the only green organic bedding manufacturers who has made the commitment to make our products with 100% renewable energy. First, we made sure we were highly energy-efficient with appliances, lighting and geothermal HVAC, R-25+ insulation, and reflection foil in our ceilings and walls. Next, we designed a system that generates both solar and wind to generate power that would meet and exceed our energy needs. The system was completed in early 2011, and we've been using zero electricity from the grid ever since.
Our system produces 89,400 kWh annually. Of that, we use approximately 84,000 kWh per year. We've opted for net-metering which means the excess energy we generate goes back to the power company.
