Our Commitment to the Earth
Saving energy is something every household and business should consider, especially with the increasingly high cost of gas and electricity, as well as the potential adverse effects that fossil fuels may have on the environment.
In our ongoing effort to reduce our energy footprint, we have completed our transformation into the “greenest” car wash in Wisconsin with our touch-less automatic and self-service location at 3900 Enterprise Dr. in Sheboygan, WI. “We’ve had solar panels for several years that heat our water for washing, as well as preheat a glycol solution that heats the concrete pads for our car wash bays”, said Steve Benish, president of Magic Car Wash. “Recently we finished converting all of our parking lot and car wash bay lighting to high-efficiency LED lights, which use 90% less energy than the bulbs we had in place previously: instead of using over 5000 Watts of electricity for 12 hours each day, we are using less than 500 Watts ”. In addition, Magic Car Wash just installed a 94% efficient on-demand hot water boiler, “We looked around to find other areas that we could save energy. We thought to ourselves, why are we constantly burning natural gas to keep 120 gallons of water at a certain temperature, especially during the slow periods and overnight? Let’s get rid of this inefficient method and put something in that will save energy and only provide hot water when it is called for by our customers”. Benish said that on sunny days, the solar panels get enough sunlight to heat the water 100% to the target temperature, but on cloudy days the solar panels can only do so much, and the new tank-less system finishes the heating job.
Benish added, “We always try to go above and beyond to make every guest feel special. This is just another way that our guests can feel good about using our car wash, knowing they are helping to be good stewards of the planet. Since the beginning of the project, we’ve reduced our total energy footprint by 55% at this location, which we’re extremely proud of. We’ve already installed energy saving Variable Speed Drives on our largest motors and have begun the LED transformation at our Full Service Car Wash at 1020 N. 10th St. in Sheboygan. The scheduled completion date for this location will be sometime later this year”.
