Cox Reports Progress On ‘Cox Conserves’
Part of its “Cox Conserves” program, which Cox Communications announced in 2007, is reducing the company’s energy consumption by 20 percent by 2017.
Reporting on its efforts to reach that goal, Cox says it has reduced its energy consumption by 10 percent while growing at nearly 12 percent a year.
Other steps the company has taken include:
- Transitioning its entire fleet to hybrid vehicles, which is expected to save the company 400 gallons of gas per vehicle per year;
- Installing an advanced lighting and HVAC control system that automatically shuts down portions of its Warwick, R.I. headquarters during off-hours, which is expected to yield a 30-percent energy savings; and
- Implementing a power management system for its 1,500 desktop computers the company says will save $37,500 a year when fully operational.
Cox recently discussed interest in having its customers in Arizona authorize the company to install solar panels on their roofs.
