LOS COMALESLittle Village
Situation: Verde was brought into a Los Comales branch in Little Village to provide an energy assessment that would hopefully lower operational costs and improve efficiency.
Problem: This Los Comales chain was open for long hours with inefficient lighting. Heating/cooling was very elementary as well.
Solution: Verde connected them with incentive programs from both CLEAResult and ComEd, allowing them to make upgrades across many of their electrical systems. They addressed efficiency by installing LED lighting indoors and outdoors, smart thermostats, and high efficiency fan motors.
Result: LED lighting cut electricity usage by 80%, smart thermostats addressed heating/cooling during unoccupied times, and a control system on the fan motors prevented unnecessary operation. Total project cost was $19,441 with an incentives rebate of $12,710. The Los Comales Little Village branch saved 129,920 kWh annually as well as $11,692 in costs per year. The return on investment was calculated at 1.1 years.
