Solar powered SmartEnergy Compactor strives towards cost savings and environmental sustainability

Waste Management

According to a press release, Waste Management, Inc., a leading company in waste management services recently introduced the SmartEnergy(SM) Compactor which could curtail electrical consumption by almost 70% compared to conventional compactors. The result is low operating costs and carbon footprints for clients. The announcement of the SmartEnergy compactor by the Houston-based environmental solutions company is aiding businesses in cutting down costs and meeting their sustainability targets more efficiently.

Every SmartEnergy compactor is armed with the company’s Compactor Monitoring Service (CMS) that enables Waste Management to get the most out of the servicing of customer’s compactors, reducing costs to the minimal and avoiding unnecessary pickups thus decreasing greenhouse gas emissions to the lowest possible. To allow businesses to concentrate on their work, WM monitors the compactors remotely using their own exclusive hardware and software.

The SmartEnergy Compactor is also equipped with another intelligent energy-saving feature; the charge box fullness indicator which endorses running of cycles only when needed because of which use of electricity and carbon footprint is reduced. The SmartEnergy Compactor delivers performance and cycle time comparable to a traditional compactor.

While the electronic controls of the SmartEnergy Compactor are solar powered by Big Belly Solar, the motor is conventionally powered. Moreover, it comes with an AC-powered backup in case if the battery isn’t fully solar-charged so that clients can always run a cycle.

With the new SmartEnergy Compactor, clients will be able to save costs as well as operate the compactor in an environmentally friendly surrounding.
