Commercial Energy Efficiency Case Studies

A few months ago, we published some of our best commercial energy efficiency case studies we completed in 2016. We continue to help customers save energy and money by upgrading their lighting and mechanical building systems. Here’s a few of our most recent project highlights.

LEI Corporation

Founded in 1987 in Boylston, MA, Landscaping Etc., Inc. (LEI) specializes in professional commercial landscape maintenance, landscape development, construction services, and snow maintenance. LEI Corporation also conducts large commercial projects across New England.

Prism helped LEI Corporation update its existing lighting and heating systems, installing LED lights, programmable thermostats, and modular cabin unit heaters. The new equipment will help LEI Corporation reduce its annual energy consumption by 70% and save $47,467 on their annual energy bills.

The town is named after the system of lakes inhabiting its geography, including Assawompset Pond, Great Quittacas Pond, Little Quittacas Pond, Pocksha Pond, and Long Pond.

Prism has helped the town reduce its energy consumption by 45,506 kWh, saving $4,642 in annual energy costs. The town will reduce its need for fossil fuels by saving 7,643 in gas (therms), 2,431 gallons of oil, and 366 gallons of propane. The projects were funded with a combination of DOER grant funds the Town received from the Green Communities Designation and Grant Program and Middleboro Gas & Electric (MG&E) funds. The project was completed with no out of pocket expenses to the town.
