Finding Low-Cost Savings in Complex Environments

 

Selected by PG&E to provide AT&T with energy audits and retrocommissioning (RCx) services, we worked closely with the AT&T West Region Energy Team to find energy and cost savings. Over the course of 45 energy audits and 4 RCx projects, we identified over 300 energy efficiency measures, and implemented 61 no-cost and low-cost RCx measures at their sites.

 

AT&T’s Energy Team was a corporate-wide campaign to identify and prioritize energy opportunities in Central Offices (CO’s) and other large facilities in the AT&T portfolio. Their energy intensive CO sites, which are networking switching facilities, range in size from small leased spaces to stand alone buildings with over 600,000 square feet of conditioned area.
