Public sector institutions turn to Johnson Controls for leadership in energy management
Company recently named preferred energy services provider in Delaware
MILWAUKEE ? (March 25, 2010) ? Public sector institutions, including state and municipal governments, K-12 school districts and state universities across the nation continue to recognize the value of energy efficiency as a means to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions. These institutions are turning to Johnson Controls, Inc. (NYSE: JCI), the global leader in providing energy efficient and sustainable products, services and solutions, for energy efficient upgrades to aging building infrastructure.
The state of Delaware recently designated the company as a preferred energy services provider by the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility (DESEU).
DESEU is a comprehensive program designed to help Delaware generate energy and cost savings, create new jobs, and support the environment. As one of the first energy services providers to be recognized by DESEU, Johnson Controls will have the opportunity to help improve the state?s government, academic, educational and municipal facilities on both the state and local levels. The recognition also enables the company to help Delaware move closer toward its goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30 percent by 2020.
?Energy efficiency has never been more important, as validated by the public sector?s continued demand for comprehensive energy efficiency solutions,? said Joy Clarke-Holmes, vice president, regional solutions, Mid-Atlantic region, Johnson Controls. ?Performance contracting energy programs are cost-effective and impactful solutions for today?s energy conscious and fiscally responsible government and educational institutions.?
Johnson Controls solutions in state, local government organizations
As the largest energy services provider in the U.S., Johnson Controls helps federal, state and local governments achieve greater energy efficiency through self-funded programs. These programs include systems integration, alternative energy solutions, and innovation, which address facility improvements, create new jobs, reduce GHG emissions and improve comfort and productivity in buildings. Recent projects of note include:
? The Indiana Department of Correction ? Johnson Controls helped five prison facilities throughout Indiana implement energy efficient upgrades including the installation of biomass boilers that utilize scrap wood from local businesses. The project helps boost the region?s economy through support of local commerce and is anticipated to save the state of Indiana more than $36 million in energy costs over the next 10 years.
? The Orange County Convention Center ? Johnson Controls developed a solar photovoltaic (PV) system for the second largest convention center in the nation, located in Orlando, Fla. The system features a 1.1 megawatt rooftop single-crystalline PV system, providing enough energy to power between 80 and 100 homes annually. The solar upgrades have resulted in significant reduction of energy costs and carbon emissions through renewable technology.
? The State of Maryland ? As part of Maryland Governor Martin O?Malley?s energy initiative, EmPOWER Maryland, Johnson Controls supported the retrofit of more than 118 government facilities throughout the state. The revamp is expected to save the state more than $29 million in energy costs through 2017. Johnson Controls also upgraded 40 Maryland State Police facilities, saving an anticipated $15.9 million in utility and operational costs over 14 years.
