EnerNOC will provide the state with metering and monitoring equipment as well as cloud-based software that gives facilities managers access to real-time energy data, allowing for specific and timely actions to reduce energy consumption at colleges, medical campuses, correctional facilities, and other state buildings
This initiative is part of a new Connecticut state program called Lead by Example, a partnership between the state’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the Department of Administrative Services, which aims to demonstrate the economic benefits of energy efficiency by achieving energy savings in state buildings. Connecticut spends more than $100 million a year to provide heating, cooling, and electricity for its buildings, according to the state’s Energy Department.
EnerNOC provides energy efficiency and other energy management services for many states and public entities, including the states of New Mexico, Rhode Island, Colorado, Vermont and Massachusetts.
In June last year, grocery chain Stop & Shop’s owner Ahold USA announced plans to deploy EnerNOC’s EfficiencySmart Insight platform to reduce energy usage and spending across 630 stores.
