Hotels in PG&E Service Territory Get Free Energy Efficiency Upgrades
Honeywell has won a $4.7 million contract from Pacific Gas & Electric to implement an energy-efficiency program in small hotels and motels throughout the PG&E service territory in northern and central California.
Under the Cool Control Plus program, Honeywell will work with participating hotels and motels to install occupancy sensors in each room to reduce the use of air conditioning and heating equipment when the rooms are not occupied. The new technology will cut consumption by an estimated 1,100 kWh per room per year on average. Motel owners can save up to $140 per room annually.
Installation and hardware costs are free of charge to lodging operators. In addition, for a 10-percent co-pay, Honeywell will replace outdated interior and exterior lighting fixtures with high-efficiency lamps, as well as install energy-saving technology on cold drink vending machines to curb the energy consumption of refrigeration equipment.
