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.
