BOSS and Westmoreland County to Roll Out Energy Savings as a Service
BOSS Controls announced that they are partnering with Westmoreland County and Sprint to deploy a fully integrated Energy Savings as a Service across county owned buildings. This service will provide immediate energy savings at the plug load for the County. It is the first of its kind partnership and is elevating Westmoreland County as a leader for clean energy innovation.
BOSS’s revolutionary service provides immediate energy savings for all applicable County buildings at the plug load and enables demand response load shedding to reduce peak demand for the electrical grid, while also reducing pollution. In the near future, this service that requires no upfront costs from building owners will be available to utility customers in the County.
Connectivity for the BOSS Smart Plugs that will be installed in the County buildings will use Sprint’s Magic Box and LTE modems with WiFi to connect the plugs. The BOSS Smart Plugs can be added to any electrical devices that simply need to be scheduled off when the buildings are unoccupied, ultimately netting meaningful cost savings and granting Westmoreland County a reduced carbon footprint
“We are very fortunate to have great innovative leaders and forward-looking organizations as we do in Westmoreland County,” says Greg Puschnigg, CEO/Founder of BOSS Controls. “What we are doing today is forever changing the electric utility business model across the world, saving on costs, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and creating many new energy technology jobs. We are proud to be the first to launch Energy Savings as a Service controlling energy down to the plug load.”
“The Westmoreland County Commissioners are pleased to partner with BOSS Controls and are in full support of the new energy savings initiative that will generate savings and rebates,” said Gina Cerilli, Chairman, Westmoreland County Board of Commissioners.
