Frito-Lay is considering an ambitious plan to take its Casa Grande, Arizona manufacturing plant “off the grid” through the installation of the latest energy saving and water saving technologies. The plant makes Lay’s potato chips, Doritos tortilla chips, Fritos corn chips, and Cheetos cheese flavored snacks. The plant uses energy in the two principal forms: natural gas from their local pipeline supplier and electricity from the grid. The energy is used to power production equipment, heat ovens, and to heat cooking oil. The company also uses water from the local water utility.

After the energy upgrades are installed, the company expects a 75% reduction in water use, an 80% reduction in natural gas consumption, and a 90% reduction in purchased electricity. Frito-Lay calls this plan the Net Zero Plan. The company’s historical and projected consumption of electricity and natural gas are shown in the attached spreadsheet.
