Bright Power is a nation-wide leader in strategic energy solutions for building owners and operators. The company engaged 75F in a pilot this year to address its leased office space's frequent simultaneous heating and cooling, a problem that was causing significant energy waste and occupant discomfort.
Case Study: Co-Working Space Improves Occupant Experience & Operational Efficiency Through Building Automation
When they decided to open their third location in the Twin Cities metro area, The Reserve, a premiere suburban co-working space, wanted their newest tenants to enjoy the same zone-controlled experience they offer in Woodbury and Edina. After deploying 75F in their first two locations, and seeing how efficiently the buildings were operating, the choice was clear to partner with 75F, once again, for an accessible, affordable building automation system.
Watch the video to learn why The Reserve's Chief Operating Officer, Mary Bartlett, sees 75F as an operational advantage and puts her business in a position to succeed!
This year was 75F's first trip to the League of Minnesota Cities Conference. And, the City of Saint Cloud and the League of Minnesota Cities did not disappoint! Attendees were excited, exhibitors were at the ready with impressive booth displays, and the decor sent you up north with a cozy, cabin feel. What else could you ask for from a Minnesota-centric conference?!
As the conference began, attendees settled in with a pre-conference workshop and dove right into the juicy (lucy) training all had traveled far and wide to attend. The 75F team began with the City Sustainability Meet-Up in the Alexander Room.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has found that about 40% of energy costs for the average commercial building are spent on heating, cooling and ventilation. This equates to about 7.5% of total costs for the average office building, since 19% of total costs are energy costs.
In 2012, a DOE study found that U.S. commercial building owners could save an average of 38% on heating and cooling costs if they install an energy efficient HVAC control system. The range of cost savings (22% to 56%) determined by the study depends on building size, building use, regional climate and local utility costs.
Imagine if you were the building owner or operator who helped your tenants save between 30% and 50% on their energy bills each month by making an energy efficiency HVAC investment, which typically earns a three-year back or less.
