Bristol (CT) is installing an energy management system (EMS) next month in City Hall, according to The Bristol Press.
The story says that the Budderfly system will monitor usage and enable employees to see usage patterns, including spikes and potentially malfunctioning gear. The story says that a lot of the equipment in the building date from its construction in 1963 and is at the end of its useful life. The first year cost of the EMS will be $9,877 including installation, hardware, monitoring software and assistance, the story says. The subsequent annual fee will be $1,850.
The story says that the city expects to save 12 percent to 15 percent going forward, with long term savings that potentially will reach 40 percent annually.
Earlier this month, Powerhouse Dynamics and Constellation created a platform that is designed to bring EMS functions to facilities of less than 10,000 square feet.
