Schools can reduce their carbon
footprint by simply turning off electrical
devices when students and faculty go home.

Program and schedule to turn down everything from water fountains to snack machines and A/C units. One large school district could be poised to save $4 million dollars in energy savings a year.

Payback is Less than Two Years Away

This marquee school district was simply looking to save on its utility bill. And while energy efficiency can be addressed in all aspects of schools, implementing a plug load management solution is easy and efficient.

BOSS Controls is discovering that many school districts across the nation are participating in energy savings challenges. Other schools districts are participating in energy savings rebates and incentive programs. Still others find that adopting a long-term sustainable policy within their district is worth their focus. Whatever the motive, reducing carbon footprint is responsible.

This case study provides you with identified savings in a school utilizing Smart Plugs. Payback with savings is less than two years in this case study. The school retains all savings after just 19 months year after year.

What we did

BOSS Controls worked with a leading strategic partner that simply generates savings for businesses. Our process began with an assessment of the school/facility, to locate devices and applications and to learn more about their WiFi network. Custom programmed, the BOSS Smart Plugs arrived at the school, and were easily installed (truly plug and play). Within just weeks, BOSS had an adequate baseline of annual energy consumption per each device.

Estimated Energy Savings were based on annualized numbers assuming normal weekday operation throughout break periods. Actual savings will likely be greater for this school with equipment turned off during the winter break, spring break, and summer periods (12 weeks). Assuming all equipment is turned off during those periods, performance with BOSS could result in additional annual savings.

What does your building cost to power?

Even when buildings are empty - which is about 70% of the time - they continue to use energy. Think about how that shrinks your budget. Powering these facilities is costing billions of dollars ever year.
