New Building, New Energy-Efficient Features

Skylights, solar and geothermal energy, and other features help Wisconsin Foam be more sustainable with its new facility.

Wisconsin Foam, a maker of foam products of all kinds on Madison's east side, recently moved into its new 150,000-square-foot facility. The local business constructed the new building with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind.

"As someone who enjoys the outdoors, I've always been committed to reducing pollution and making wise choices to protect the environment. When that means saving energy too, it's a win-win situation," Rick Heinritz, President and CEO of Wisconsin Foam, said.

Heinritz, who is a longtime participant in MGE's Green Power Tomorrow program, installed a 100-kilowatt solar array on the roof and geothermal energy to heat and cool the facility's office space. See how Heinritz made these investments work for his business in this brief video, and read about other energy-saving features at Wisconsin Foam in the upcoming summer edition of MGE Talks Business.
