Los Comales

Little Village


This restaurant chain had the double combination of long hours and inefficient lighting. While it meant they had been spending a lot on electricity over the years, it also meant that they had significant opportunity to make energy use reductions and reduce their operating costs. At the time, we connected them with incentive programs from both CleaResult and ComEd, allowing us to make upgrades across many of their electrical systems. We addressed efficiency by installing LED lighting indoor and outdoor to cut electricity usage by 80%, smart thermostats to address heating/cooling during unoccupied times, and high efficiency fan motors and a control systems to prevent unnecessary operation. We think the results speak for themselves.
