Mercury Marine is one of six Wisconsin manufacturers receiving a grant to improve energy efficiency at its facility.

Mercury Marine, of Fond du Lac, will receive $270,000 to install three centralized air collection systems for its machining centers. These systems will allow clean, filtered air to be recycled inside the facility rather than treating the contaminated air and exhausting the treated air outside.

The project will save more than 600,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity and 236,000 therms (a therm equals 100,000 BTUs) of natural gas each year - enough energy to power more than 300 homes for a year and save Mercury Marine more than $200,000 in annual energy costs.

A total of $1.7 million was given in grants, Gov. Jim Doyle announced.
