Kilawatt Technologies plan reduces energy use at Vermont Public Television 20 percent
Initial results of the Energy and Environment Management Project with Vermont Public Television indicates that Vermont Public Television’s energy consumption was reduced by 20 percent in the first six months of this year as compared to last, according to Kilawatt Technologies of Shelburne.
During this same period, the unit price of energy increased 11.5 percent. Vermont Public Television retained Kilawatt Technologies in 2011 to review their energy footprint and evaluation options for the renovation of their existing HVAC system.
Kilawatt Technologies’ Energy Assessment provided visibility to the energy consumption on specific circuits and identified the most inefficient consumption items that had the greatest economic benefit. Based on this analysis, Kilawatt Technologies proposed some immediate repair issues that were implemented via Vermont Public Television’s own engineering staff.
Kilawatt Technologies has twenty-three (23) new tasks to be implemented, each with a payback of less than a year, which will further conserve energy at their station.
