PG&E collaborates on retrofit using integrated DSM technology
A 500,000 square foot, 12 building installation for Menlo Business Park is expected to save between 50 and 70 percent annually through the use of Enlighted's lighting control system with additional savings from the automated demand response and integration of occupancy data with the HVAC systems.
The energy-efficiency retrofit included Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), EnerNOC, Global Energy Partners and Progressive Lighting & Energy Solutions who collaborated to promote the use of innovative services to deliver successful Integrated Demand Side Management (DSM) technology.
The combined project of HVAC demand response controls and lighting efficiency upgrades received more than $500,000 in incentives and should see energy savings in excess of $400,000, as well as a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of more than one million pounds per year.
The project also integrates several PG&E third party programs, including Ecology Action's Right Lights and the Technical Incentives (TI) for Open Automated Demand Response from Global Energy Partners. In addition, the California High Performance Lighting Program (CHPLP) offers comprehensive lighting assessments and substantial incentives for lighting upgrades to office and warehouse spaces in PG&E's service area.
