Kilawatt Technologies reduces the VPT on-air studio’s electrical usage by 86 percent

first_imgKilawatt Technologies has announced significant energy savings in Vermont Public Television’s Studio A, one of its on-air TV studios.’ Built in 1967, Studio A was once heated and cooled using three independent, state-of-the-art HVAC systems. Over time, knowledge of how the systems worked and needed to be maintained was lost, and the systems fell into disrepair. As a result, Studio A was uncomfortably warm for those who worked there.’ Although VPT had been given a proposal for over $360,000 to replace the three HVAC systems, Kilawatt Technologies studied them and figured out how they had been intended to function. Turning the three analog air systems into digital ones was no small feat, but Kilawatt ended up not only saving VPT from having to buy a new system but brought the old systems back online and saved VPT a considerable amount of energy and money.’ Joe Tymecki, VPT’s Facilities Manager, said, ‘What Kilawatt does is save you so much energy that the utility may come knocking to see if their meter is broken.’’ Instead of being hot most of the time, Studio A is comfortable. In addition, energy costs for cooling the studio have plunged from 22 kW to 3 kW due to the revitalization of the old system. ‘ This has resulted in an’ 86% reduction in electrical consumption.Steven Antinozzi, Vice President of Kilawatt Technologies, stated,’ ‘We are very pleased to be able to achieve these results for Vermont Public Television. It’s been great to create a comfortable work environment for VPT staff while drastically reducing their energy costs.’ Background’ Kilawatt Technologies, founded in 2008, provides a data-centric, statistically based, energy and environmental management program. The methods involve continuous trending and analysis of energy and interior environmental data for commercial, multi-family, and industrial buildings.’ Vermont Public Television’ (VPT) is Vermont’s statewide public television network, serving the region on the air, online at VPT.org and in the community. ‘ VPT’s signal covers Vermont, as well as bordering regions of New York, New Hampshire and southern Quebec, including Montreal.
