HARTFORD, CT (August 4, 2014) – The Connecticut Convention Center has recently taken steps in the green direction with the completion of two major projects that will improve the facility’s energy efficiency.
Beginning last summer, the Center entrusted the help of Strategic Building Solutions (SBS) to review the energy usage for chilled water, hot water, and steam throughout the facility. For four months, SBS made adjustments to the Center’s computers, pump controls, motor controls, and Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs). Within a month of SBS completing these adjustments, the Convention Center saw a savings in chilled water and hot water usage. To this day, those savings have continued.
“With the assistance of SBS, we took our existing heating and cooling system, which services our 540,000 square foot facility, to operate more efficiently and effectively resulting in cost savings and lower energy usage,” explains Michael Costelli, General Manager for the Connecticut Convention Center.
