Londonderry, N.H. – One day after attending a bill-signing ceremony at the White House with President Obama, the Granite State’s senior senator paid a visit to Bosch Thermotechnology on Friday, May 1st in recognition of the company’s commitment to producing energy efficient heating and cooling systems.
Her bipartisan, co-sponsored bill, the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2015, aims to increase energy efficiency by building owners and tenants and calls for energy monitoring of federally leased buildings, among other provisions. During her time at Bosch Thermotechnology, Senator Shaheen toured the facility, met with Bosch accredited contractors training on-site, and helped to plant a white birch, the official tree of the Granite State, on the Bosch grounds.
As noted by incoming Bosch Thermotechnology Corp. President Vitor Gregorio, “We were excited to welcome Senator Shaheen to our facility to commemorate enactment of the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act. As this was my first official day as President of Bosch Thermotechnology Corp., I was especially pleased to welcome the senator, and at the same time, bid farewell to outgoing President Richard Soper. We expect that this is just the beginning in enacting meaningful legislation to encourage energy efficiency in the homes and businesses across the U.S.”
