Spellman’s Energy Conservation Programs Reduce Carbon Footprint
Spellman High Voltage has successfully reduced its average daily electricity usage at all its Global facilities and its natural gas usage. Renewable energy is used on our Corporate Headquarters with a total capacity of 471.258 kW. Illumination upgrades were done and continue on development throughout the facilities using high efficiency light fixtures that reduced electricity consumption while improving general lighting conditions. Automatic motion sensors helped to eliminate wasted energy. Air conditioning, air handling and temperature regulation equipment were upgraded and networked as part of a strategic plan to provide more consistent environmental comfort for Spellman employees while reducing natural gas consumption.

Energy conservation programs are good for both the environment and business".
Spellman Clean Tech Competition
Spellman’s concern for the environment has led us to sponsor the Clean Tech Competition for the last two years. Developed by the Rockville Centre based Center for Science Teaching and Learning (CSTL) eight years ago, the Spellman HV Electronics Clean Tech Competition is the only STEM competition with a focus on using clean technology to solve environmental challenges. This year’s finals were held at Stony Brook University’s Wang Center.
Chosen from almost 550 teams from 39 countries, ten international finalist teams presented their STEM-based solutions for climate change. In addition to the prizes awarded at the event, the winning team also has the opportunity to attend and present at The World Congress on Climate Change in Rome, Italy in September.
