    Manning it up to help save the environment

    At first glance you may not take notice, but recently the golf carts at the E.M. Duggan headquarters got an eco-friendly face lift. In addition to being in charge of  shipping and receiving logistics, E. M Duggan’s Bill Manning is always looking for ways to make the companies carbon foot even better.

    Each night Manning would plug in the golf carts and thought it was a waste of energy when solar power was readily available. “I looked up what we could do as far as getting a kit to match the golf carts and that’s what we did, we found something that would generate enough energy during the day that would charge the batteries so they would not need to be plugged in anymore,” says Manning.

    But, it was not that simple, the first cart took several hours to put together, but once he mastered what needed to be done Manning got to work on a second one. He plans to solarize all four carts.

    Manning says per cart E.M. Duggan is saving four hundred and fifty pounds of carbon per year, and over a coupe of years the solarized golf carts will pay for themselves. According to the EPA’s greenhouse equivalency calculator that four hundred and fifty pounds of carbon is equal to saving 1,834 miles worth of driving with an average vehicle, now multiply that by four Duggan golf carts and that’s a savings of 7,336 miles of driving per year.

    Manning says the panels will last for about ten years and more earth friendly practices are in the works, so when you see him be sure to give him a green thumbs up!

    E.M. Duggan makes national news

    E.M. Duggan’s Savy Man Doherty is featured on CNBC as part of a piece on women in construction. Savy is hard at work at the Wynn Casino in Ma. CNBC’s Contessa Brewer reports on how some U.S. casinos are utilizing tradeswomen to encourage construction firms to close the gender gap.
