Retirement community sees first-year energy savings of $120,000

The residents association at Kings Point has had the thankless task of monitoring increasing energy costs across a retirement community housing more than 13,000 residents in Delray Beach, Florida. Eniscope made that a whole lot easier.

A transparent, proven approach

The formula followed by BEST partner EcoEnergy presented an opportunity for the Kings Point association to take charge of their rising energy costs, providing them with a transparent and proven approach to energy monitoring and efficiency.

No longer would the management team need to accept the exaggerated claims of well-versed salespeople. They would be in the driver’s seat and the energy savings would be there for all to see. The first stage in the process focuses on bringing current energy consumption under control with Eniscope monitoring, following the mantra, “You can’t control what you can’t measure.”

The Strategy

EcoEnergy combined retrofit LED lighting systems with motion sensors, Chilled Unit Energy Savers (CUES), and variable-frequency drives (VFDs) on pool motors across the site.

The Results

In just over 12 months, Kings Point benefited from an up to 35% reduction in their annual energy spend, resulting in a cash saving of $120,000 in year one.
