16 Businesses Join Behavior-Based Energy Challenge
Snohomish County Public Utility District in Washington launched a community-based Stanwood Energy Challenge, in which two teams of eight businesses each will compete to see which can save more energy.
“Our primary goal is to learn how much small businesses can save through employee actions and low-cost equipment changes,” said PUD utility analyst Laura McCrae. “The actual benefits may go beyond electricity savings as the businesses look at how they can also lower natural gas use, eliminate water waste and reduce their use of other resources.”
The Stanwood Energy Challenge is running from February 3 through June 30, 2014. Each business will receive a real-time energy dashboard to track electricity usage, both at its site and at the team level.
The Stanwood Energy Challenge, a behavior-based energy efficiency pilot program, is funded in part by the Bonneville Power Administration. Snohomish PUD selected PECI to provide pilot design and implementation. Lucid will provide businesses detailed insight into their real-time electricity usage via its Building Dashboard software.
