Previous Participant Success!

While reviewing the facility’s energy usage profile, an Energy Advisor noticed an ongoing potentially unnecessary daily demand from 5:00 pm -10:30 pm, as well as weekend usage, when the building should have been unoccupied. The Advisor created a tailored recommendation of several operational adjustments for the facility that would limit energy waste, based on these no-cost, easy to implement actions.

The results:

  • 378,064 kWh in annual energy savings
  • $39,120 in avoided annual energy costs
  • 295 tons of CO2 emissions avoided
