SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) -- General Motors has upgraded lighting at its Spring Hill plant and expects to save about $800,000 annually in electricity costs.
The auto assembly plant -- built to produce the Saturn nameplate cars -- will soon be making 2013 Chevrolet Equinox crossover vehicles. The engine plant, also in Spring Hill, will make a new 2.5-liter engine for the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu.
The new high-efficiency fluorescent lights are in the body shop and general assembly buildings.
GM officials said the company will complete a second phase of the lighting project later this year. The combined projects are expected to avoid about $1.3 million in electricity costs annually at the Spring Hill complex.
