What Have We Accomplished?
360 Energy Group is excited to reveal our updated proven results. We have worked incredibly hard to produce the numbers you see here, and we could not be more thankful to have you along for the journey. Because of your commitment to energy efficiency, we have assessed over 150 million square feet, completed over 1,200 energy assessments, and performed over 400 retro-commissioning studies. Through the identification of both capital and operational improvements, we have helped our customers cut energy spending drastically with an identified annual cost savings of over $49 million.
We hope to boost these numbers even more in 2020 by identifying and completing more capital and operational energy improvements. With most organizations working remotely, it may be a great time to get some work done. Start with some easy energy upgrades by contacting us at 312-265-3971 or email@example.com.
To alleviate the energy burden for income-eligible communities, the Smart Energy Design Assistance Center (SEDAC), a public-private partnership between 360 Energy Group and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is administering an easy to participate, highly incentivized program that allows energy efficiency to be a practical option for the communities that need it most. With over 275 active projects, our team has identified energy savings of over 8 million kWh through on-site and virtual visits.To put that number into perspective, 8 million kWh is equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions of driving nearly 15 million miles in an average passenger vehicle.
The program provides no-to-low cost energy efficiency improvements to both lighting and HVAC. This includes LED interior and exterior lighting, occupancy sensors, HVAC tune-up measures, enthalpy economizer optimization, variable speed drives, and more! With all the energy savings, customers have expressed a reduced need for furloughs and layoffs. To see if your facility qualifies, contact our Project Manager, Bryan Tillman, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-236-8901.
