Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced a new online resource for companies and governmental agencies seeking to launch infrastructure, modernization or energy-efficiency projects with stimulus funding available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The new Eaton Web site, www.eaton.com/recovery, presents the diverse range of Eaton products and systems designed to help customers manage power more efficiently, effectively and safely.
“An extraordinary time calls for an extraordinary response, and Eaton is ready to help our customers get to work recharging the economy,” said Alexander M. Cutler, Eaton chairman and chief executive officer. “Across all of our businesses, Eaton delivers innovative power management technologies that can help control cost and reduce energy requirements. We believe these products and solutions hit the sweet spot for customers launching infrastructure or energy-efficiency initiatives.”
Eaton's new Web site offers a snapshot of detailed, solution-oriented approaches using the company's electrical and hydraulic products and systems in vital market applications that require effective power management. Potential applications include hydro and wind power generation as well as data centers, hospitals, high-speed railways, airports, public housing facilities, water treatment plants, and other key elements of infrastructure.
In demanding applications, Eaton products have proven their value. Eaton electrical power metering equipment, lighting controls and variable frequency drives, for example, helped the University of Notre Dame significantly reduce energy consumption on campus. Massive Eaton hydraulic cylinders, pumps and valves play key roles in improving structural stability of many bridges and public facilities in the nation's earthquake-prone areas. Eaton electrical switchgear, uninterruptible power systems and hydraulic power units help keep wind turbines running in harsh conditions.
Additional applications featured on the Web site include fuel economy and emissions, supported by Eaton's leading hybrid power systems for commercial vehicles. These offerings complement the program Eaton introduced in March to assist truck fleet owners in applying for diesel hybrid grants available through the ARRA. To date, truck customers have applied for federal grants worth millions of dollars with Eaton's help.
Although initially focused on U.S.-based customers, Eaton will expand the new Web site to include assistance for customers in other regions of the world.
More information on Eaton infrastructure and modernization capabilities, including integrated services for federal customers and engineering project management, is available at www.eaton.com/recovery or by calling 888-ETN-1USA (888-386-1872).
