(August 2009) — When the Aroostook Centre Mall in Presque Isle determined that its energy technology was obsolete and more importantly, uneconomical, it looked to Mechanical Services to help.

The mall conducted an energy audit and found it was using an excessive amount of electricity to heat and air condition its vast retail space. One of the first solutions was to upgrade to a more efficient propane heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit — and recycle the old electric-fired 20-ton units.

It’s the first step to a greener mall says General Manager Patti Crook. See the full report from WAGM-TV 8.
