West Point, Georgia Plant 50 percent of plant’s energy is from renewable sources including hydro, biomass, solar and wind, which will save the emission of nearly 7,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide over the next six years – the equivalent of planting nearly 200,000 trees Roof has a white TPO roof membrane, which greatly reduces heat gain thereby reducing HVAC loads and electrical energy consumption. The use of high-efficiency fluorescent lighting, and motion sensors in plant and office areas reduces electrical energy consumption. Construction debris generated during building construction was recycled. Johnson Controls newest automotive seating and door plant in West Point, Georgia demonstrates the company’s commitment to continuously improving the environmental impact of our operations
