Goodwill Southern California manages over 70 retail stores. Many of the facilities are old and in need of improvement to reduce energy costs.
With rising energy prices, Goodwill management were looking for data on what improvement projects to focus on, and what facilities to prioritize.
Also being aware that some savings could be realized by changing routines or adjusting existing timers and thermostats, they required more detailed data than a monthly utility bill from each store.
Each store was equipped with a 3-phase energy meter and an ezeio controller. Data from each phase is recorded every 5 minutes and weekly report is generated for each store.
The report is automatically emailed to management.
The ezeio system provides Goodwill management with current and detailed data from each store.
Working with their energy consultant, they now have factual data to determine where, and what kind of energy upgrades will have the best payback.
Some facilities will be equipped with PV, some with new thermostats, while other locations only require changes in staff routines to reduce cost significantly.
