Vermont Public TV Studio Cuts Electricity Use 86%
Vermont Public Television’s Studio A cut its electrical usage by 86 percent with the help of Kilawatt Technologies.
Built in 1967, Studio A is heated and cooled using three independent HVAC systems. Over time, knowledge of how the systems worked and how they 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.
It would have cost the public television station $360,000 to replace the three HVAC systems. Instead, Kilawatt Technologies figured out how the systems had been intended to function and turned the three analog air systems into digital ones. As a result, energy costs for cooling the studio have dropped from 22 kW to 3 kW due to the revitalization of the old system.
