Collus PowerStream helps Canadian Mist Distillery reach their energy conservation goals


Utility provides business with incentive cheque for $41,318 towards energy efficient retrofits

COLLINGWOOD, ON – Today Collus PowerStream recognized Canadian Mist Distillery for reducing its electricity consumption through its participation in the utility’s Save on Energy Retrofit program. 
Canadian Mist Distillery, the makers of Canada’s oldest continuously owned and operated distillery in Collingwood, were presented with an incentive cheque in the amount of $41,318 as a result of its involvement in the program. 

The company has participated in two retrofit projects in the last year, both involving the installation of Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) on key pieces of equipment; the water pump and grain dryer. These projects reduce energy while increasing process control. Other non-energy benefits include reduced noise and maintenance from things such as “water hammer” when the large pump starts up.
