At an operational level, HPA strives to continuously improve, bringing new ideas, technologies and partnerships to the task of improving the port’s environmental footprint. HPA’s maintenance team works closely with local utility, Horizon Utilities, to implement a range of energy-conservation techniques. In one of the port’s recently-renovated buildings, innovative retrofits have attracted $22,000 in conservation incentives and resulted in energy savings of more than 65,000 kw/h annually. The port building, which houses a construction company, a sugar refinery and a craft brewery, features energy-saving lighting inside and out, gravity-fed floor drainage, and a high-efficiency HVAC system.
